Belated Blogiversary

Has it really been only three years? Not really, I started my first blog almost four years ago. Apple's Tree was born 3 December 2006 when I discovered that there was a small community of others writing about their family history but not necessarily interested in reading about my day to day follies.

Having a place to write just about my family history has forced me to do just that, but the real benefit for me has been the friendship and support I have received as a member of the geneablogging community. Between the Carnival and Genealogy and items written by others I've learned and written about many aspects of my family history that I never would have otherwise.

The focus of this blog has changed over the years and will undoubtedly change again. I thank each and every one of you who has stuck by me!

Below are a couple of my favorite posts for each year.

Carlisle Family Home

Ruby Blanche Camfield

Winter on the Tug Hill

Grandpa Loved Franklins

Princess for a Day

Like Jasia you were one of the first genealogy bloggers to comment on my blog and befriend me during a difficult time. Your blog rocks and for me it has always embodied what a great genealogy blog should be. Happy Blogiversary!

Happy Anniversary, Apple. I can't imagine the geneablogosphere without Apple's Tree! Here's to many, many more years of great genealogy posts!

A very happy 3rd blogiversary to you! (I forgot mine, too, a few months back). You are one of the great genea-writers that we'd all like to emulate - taking all the parts of the story, recording them, and putting them together in an interesting way.

So glad that I wasn't the only one with a belated notice! Congratulations, Apple. Thanks for the links to your favorites. You got started almost two years before me so I'm happy to see what I missed!
