This meme seems to be all the rage today out in the Genea-Blogosphere and since I prefer memes where I don't need to tag other genea-bloggers, I thought I'd give it a go. The idea is to take the first sentence of the first post of each month in the previous year (2008) and list them.
1. "I have to say that I really enjoyed Craig Manson's post "Greatest Genealogy Find Ever" over at Geneabloggie." from My Greatest Genealogical Find Ever.
2. "I am happy to announce some progress on the MacEntee side of my family tree." from A Wall Broken Down.
3. "Jasia at Creative Gene, who you all know I absolutely adore and really made me the genea-blogging junkie that I am, has a great post today dealing with the concept of a 'matriname.'" from The Name Game - Family Name Schematics In Different Cultures.
4. "As I mentioned in my earlier post, I have actually been able to leverage both a website and several blogs to meet my needs." from A Melded Website/Blog Environment.
