New Year's Resolutions???
This is one of my favorite pictures. It is a painting by Norman Rockwell and appeared as a Saturday Evening Post magazine cover in the 1950s. Since this piqued my interest way back then, and I'm still interested in family history today, I count myself lucky! But on to New Year's Resolutions......... why make them only to ignore or break them by the end of January? How about just look at and analyze your days and see where and upon what are you spending the majority of your time? Will that something matter in 100 years? The thrift shops are (unfortunately) full of quilts and crocheted items and painted china. A thoroughly cleaned house will be messy again within a week. Your family, your ancestors, were, are and will be of interest continuing forever so why not concentrate on your family and your family history?? EWGS stands ready and willing to assist you; wouldn't you like to know if there was a one-eyed pirate in your family tree?
