2008 Genea-MusingsReview in 12 Sentences

John Newmark on the Transylvanian Dutch blog found this meme about creating a brief summary of your blog in 2008 - take the first sentence from the first post of each month. You will end up with only twelve sentences. Post those twelve sentences.

Here is Genea-Musings 2008 year in review in 12 first-of-the-month posts:

1 January: "Craig Manson has a great post about his "Greatest Genealogy Find Ever" which talks about finding records for the mother of his Aunt Grace." in My Greatest Genealogy Find Ever.

1 February: "Many, or all, LDS Family History Centers will be closed on Saturday, 2 February, in honor of their deceased President, Gordon Hinckley." in FHCs may be Closed on Saturday, 2 February.

1 March: "This is the third in a series of posts that define what I know about the descendants of my 3rd-great-grandparents, Samuel and Mary Ann (Underhill) Vaux." in Descendants of Samuel and Mary Ann (Underhill) Vaux - Post 3.

1 April: "Automobiles were a big part of many peoples lives in the 20th century." in The Cars of My Life.

1 May: "Manning M. Knapp (1825-1892) was a Justice in the New Jersey Superior Court for a number of years up to his death in 1892 in the court room." in What a Way to Go.

1 June: "Here are my picks for great reads from the genealogy blogs for this past week." in Best of the Genea-Blogs - May 25-31, 2008.

1 July: "At the SCGS Genealogy Jamboree, I attended Cath Madden Trindle's presentation on Sunday morning titled "But It's My Family; Copyright Issues for the 21st Century Genealogist," and learned (perhaps re-learned what I had forgotten) a lot. " in More on Ancestry "Ownership" of User Databases.

1 August: "My wife and I are going cruising in October on the Wholly Genes cruise, departing New York City on 26 October, visiting Antigua and the Virgin Islands before landing in San Juan, Puerto Rico on 2 November." in Cruiser needs Hotel Advice in NYC and PR.

1 September: "It's Labor Day, and I thought somebody (My readers? My kids? My friends?) might be interested in my job history." in Randy's Job History.

1 October: "I posted about receiving my mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) results in My mtDNA is in the K Haplogroup. " in My mtDNA Results on GeneTree.

1 November: "We will dock today at 7 am in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands in the eastern Caribbean." in My Genealogy Plan for Saturday, 1 November 1.

1 December: "The Southern California Genealogical Society has an annual writing contest with monetary prizes in two categories." in SCGS Writing Contest Entries due 31 December.

That's it - another meme complied with...who else is brave enough to do this? The only benefit I see is that your blog gets a bunch of Page Views from all of the hyperlink copy and paste.
