Hi everyone!  I just wanted to update you on a few site updates.

Header:  A few months ago, I posted that I was going to try to get a new header for my blog.  I was looking into Esty.com and see if I could find one that I liked at a reasonable price.  Although they were reasonably priced, I didn’t find one that I liked.  So, I decided to try to make my own.  With the help and advice from Thomas MacEntee from Geneabloggers.com, I found a way to make my own header.  The pictures used above are either my own collection or my husband’s collection of photos.  All photos used are of family members from both of our families and used with permission. 

Declutter:  As you can tell, I did a lot of decluttering on this site as well.  I wanted to make it more clean and easier to read and follow.  I have also decluttered the menu under the header as well.

Disclosures:  I want to start this paragraph off by saying that I do not intend to use this blog as an income producing blog.  I have a full-time job that supports my genealogy obsession, so any income produced from this blog will fund my genealogy education endevors. This blog is a way for me to not only keep family members up to date on my research, but also to help others in their research.  With that being said, in the new menu at the top of the page, you will notice a new tab that I didn’t have before.  One that is titled Disclosures.  There you will be able to read my disclosure policy.

Afilliates:  I currently only have one affiliate and that is for Legacy Family Tree.  I am affiliate with Legacy Family Tree because 1) it is the software I personally use to keep my research in order and 2) I love the product.  I am not an expert on everything about using the program, but I know that I like it and it is easy for me to use and understand.  So if you want to help a girl out, you can click on the link and purchase something from their store.  My genealogy educational fund will love you for it!!!

My other blog:  I know in another older post I had posted the link to my other blog called One Crafty Mom.  I had decided to moved that blog from blogger to WordPress and have a new link for it which is located at the bottom of every page.  I also gave it a new, more updated name: One Creative Mom.  Oh, you might notice the header is very similar too.  So if your looking to find some creative ideas on just about anything, head on over to One Creative Mom and take a gander.  Leave a comment, you know I always read them all!

Have a great day y’all!!!
