  2. Congratulations with your blogs 4th birthday. Many happy returns!
    I send you an email regarding the Horsman name and my blog.

  3. Hi Cindy, I'm a new follower. I was researching ideas for celebrating my food blog's anniversary and I found your site through the blogoversary counter. I've often thought that genealogy research would an interesting pastime (I fear :-) that it could become an obsession), so I'm waiting for some of my current pastimes (obsessions) to fade. So for now, I'll follow your adventures and learn a bit before I get started.

  4. Happy 4th Blogiversary. I've been doing genealogy for years, but just joined GeneaBloggers in September. My blog is a work in progress and constantly changing. This is a great community and I have learned so much, I noticed you little bloiversary countdown gadget. Hadn't seen that before. I keep adding gadgets, and will probably take some away before long.


  5. I salute all these veterans who sacrifice their life. They are great soldiers and veterans who always live hard and keep fighting till their last breath. We should always remember that their contribution is very important and we should never forget them. Congrats on your 4th anniversary of your blog.
