Others May Come and Go

I've been doing some websurfing, looking at other online newsletters, websites, blogs, etc. My particular focus was how-to material, posted regularly.

Many start, but few continue after the "new" has worn off. There are some newsletters that continue for a period of time, some of which have been publishing for years. Those appear to be in the minority. Even blogs that a few years ago were updated regularly have fewer and fewer posts. That's not always bad as posting for the sake of posting sometimes leads to babbling.

At Casefile Clues, we continue to keep on plugging away. We're not going to stop because we got tired, etc. There are still quite a few ancestors I've researched that I would like to write about and quite a few more that I plan on researching so I can write about. I've also got a few records and sources that I've used that I'd like to write about as well. There's plenty of content stacked on my desk. And usually when I write one article, ideas for at least one more come along during the writing and editing process.

And then there's always ideas from readers.

I've also got a few things on the list based upon having read Evidence Explained by Elizabeth Shown Mills and the Board for Certification of Genealogists' Stanards manual. There's never a lack of material.

We'd love to have you join us on the journey. Genealogy is about learning and there's quite a bit yet to do.
