I'm hoping that everybody had a nice, relaxing, peaceful Christmas and New Year. I know that I did, but now it's time to get back to the important business of my family history research.
2013 promises new opportunities for discovering the past as more and more records are released online. This is one of the best aspects of our hobby, in that it is constantly evolving. There is always information lying undiscovered, just waiting to be brought to light. Personally, I have a few brick walls that I still need to break through, and I'm hoping that 2013 will be the year that I finally manage to do it.
I aim to become much more organised in 2013. I want to free up more time for research in my local library, and I'd love to plan more trips to the Scotland's People Centre in Edinburgh.
I'm excited by the opportunities that 2013 will bring. Who knows what further secrets I'll discover in my family's past?
