Mission From MYRTLE

Dear MYRTLE  the queen of Family History Bloggers, challenged me last weekend at the Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree!

In front of a group of 100 people she committed me to ” Use technology to honor ancestors and document fun activities of the current generation by creating websites, blogs and podcasts”.

I hesitated because comitting to a blog is like starting CPR on a victim. It is important to do but it takes an on-going commitment.

For over 40 ears I have loved to search out my genealogy but it runs in spurts. It is always on my mind but not on my calendar.

There is probably nothing I would rather do than surf the internet in search of the origin of the name Helmantoler.

So MYRTLE here is my promised blog. Thank you for the challenge. I needed it.
