Ancestral Notes Passes (Feb. 8, 2009 – Sept. 25, 2009)

It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden death of Ancestral Notes. It was a young blog, not even one year old, but it had quite a following by some of the leaders in the Geneablogging Community. The Canadian blog was an homage to the lives of the author’s ancestry and will live on in the memories of all who read it.

Ancestral Notes will be missed by many, but especially the author, who spent many hours, with almost daily visits, creating blog posts. Ancestral Notes was a Carnival of Genealogy participant, Smile for the Camera entrant, Canadian Genealogy Carnival enthusiast and had also had articles in the Carnival of Irish Culture and Heritage. The blog also had fun on Saturday Nights with Randy Seaver’s Genea-musings and several daily memes.

Although only seven months old, it had a strong impact on the author’s life, creating frieindships in the geneablogger community and receiving awards such as the Lovely Blog Award, The Friendly Blogger Award and the Kreativ Blogger Award. It also displayed several badges such as the Geneabloggers, Footnote and Genealogywise badges. A portait was presented by footnote Maven and was displayed at the top of the page.

Ancestral Notes can be viewed in the Google cache anytime, day or night.
Private cremation of remains. Donations can be made to the Genealogy database of your choice in lieu of flowers.
