Family Website: 3rd Year Milestone

It's been 3 years since I began this website in 2009.
I have come a long ways.
I had no idea where I would go...
I have shared some much.
I got some respondes.
And came across a few long lost relatives...through this website.
I was looking at my very first post...
I didn't have much to say.
I made some corrections and added what's in red on my first post.

In The Beginning...
I thought to start a blog on my family history. I have been searching for over 30 years. But where do I go from here in sharing what I have discovered?
What will I share?

When I first started out I knew very little about my ancestors. I only knew my father, David, mother, Lula and my mother's mother, Mary. There was little data that I knew of them too.

It wasn't until a little after my Grandma Mary (ALLEN) LANKFORD passing in 1976 when I became interested in my family tree. I thought when my Grandma Mary died all the information about the family was gone too.

I was so wrong on that. Through the process of time, I came across data and records. I am so thankful to God for the lead. I discovered so much over the years.

Where do I go from here in sharing what I have discovered.
What will I share?
