This blog is four years old today. I want to thank everyone who is a ‘follower’, and all who have offered support and feedback over the years. I hope to keep it going for at least a while longer. There are more stories to tell (just need to find more time to tell them!). And, my offer stands—if you are a descendant of a family covered in this blog, you are welcome to submit material for a guest post about one of your ancestors.
I don’t write with ‘stats’ in mind, but to close, I will leave you with some blog ‘stats’ for the last four years. It’s kind of interesting to see where all the visitors come from and what topics interest them. For some reason, the Thanksgiving murder/suicide post has been getting lots of visitors lately. I’m not sure why that is. I did update it not too long ago with some newspaper images from the Philadelphia Inquirer that were not freely available for reuse at the time I published it. If you are interested in that branch of the Brodhead family, you may want to revisit it.
I was also surprised to see that the post I did about my father’s uncle Lewis Dingman Brodhead is the ‘most shared’. I’m still at a dead-end with knowing what happened to Lewis’s wife Mildred. I wrote the Schuylkill Co. (PA) Historical Society, and they could not find anything either. The next step is to go to the court house there to investigate divorce records. A trip north is not in the cards for me at the moment, however.
In any case, it’s satisfying to see that this blog is obviously being of benefit to cousins, near and far, known and as yet unknown.
THANK YOU AGAIN, ONE AND ALL!
