  2. Welcome to Geneabloggers! I must say I was a wee bit jealous of your inheritance of your grandmother's research, but what a wonderful gift!

    I'd like to give you a hint, if I may ... when you transcribe a document and you have blanks that need to be filled in, you should post a scan of the document on your blog with the transcription so the genealogy community here can take a look and possibly fill in some of those blanks for you. We live for that sort of thing! :)

    Good luck and happy hunting!
