Wishing you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year!
While I am not much for New Year's resolutions, I do believe in setting some goals for the year. Why not use January to figure out what you want to accomplish in your family history this year? Will you finally write your family history to share with family? Or will you solve that brick wall that you have been working on for years? Whatever you decide, we can only hope that 2021 will bring us a calmer and healthier new year. Happy New Year!
