In July last year I posted my final blogpost and signed off from Writing A Family History Blog.
I'd been diagnosed with advanced colo-rectal cancer and was about to commence chemotherapy. The cancer had spread into my liver and pelvic bone and I didn't think I would be doing much family history ever again.
Well, my NHS doctors, nurses and support staff have been magnificent and the advances in medical science have given them some marvellous drugs with which to try and control the cancer. So far I'm responding well to the treatment and the side-effects are manageable.
I've continued to write an occasional post on my Cabbage and Semolina Blog https://cabbageandsemolina.wordpress.com/ and I've been writing my daily blog again since November. https://3sixtyfiveblog.wordpress.com/
Now I've decided to kickstart my Writing A Family History Blog as well.
So, I hope you'll come back and visit whenever you can and see how I'm getting on.
I already know what the first post in my re-awakened blog will be. It's about Michael's Auntie Fan who you can meet on the East End Family Photos page and I think you'll be rather surprised at what I've discovered.
I've re-arranged the pages on the website and added a couple of new ones. There's a Contact Form on the Home Tab if you want to share stories or ask questions and a link to my Books website too.
To celebrate my return to Writing A Family History Blog I'm making my Writing Your Family History On-Line ebook FREE to download on Saturday March 31st. Did you know that you don't need to buy a Kindle to read Kindle Books. Follow that link to my Cabbage and Semolina Blog for more information or just go straight to this page on the Amazon website.
Writing Your Family History On-Line received a lovely review from genealogical mystery writer, Wendy Percival last year. Her Esme Quentin mysteries make perfect reading for Family History enthusiasts who enjoy detective work - and who doesn't?
Many thanks, Wendy, and to the other two reviewers of Writing Your Family History On-Line as well. So, don't forget: you can get a free copy of the book on Saturday March 31st to read at your leisure.
And thankyou for reading my blogpost and visiting my website today. Hope you have an enjoyable Easter and that the weather wherever you live isn't too awful!
