National Family History Month Update

August 27, 2016

Family History Month definitely has not turned out as I expected. I had planned to attend special events, both in Bendigo and Melbourne.

 I had also made a commitment to participate in the National Family History Month blog challenge. All went as planned for the first week of the month until everything  went awry in week two. I was out walking with the dogs, when I slipped over in the mud and broke bones in my right hand, wrist and arm, as well as injuring an already dodgy knee. 

These injuries are keeping me quiet and not able to work. You would think this would be a good opportunity to spend hours each day on genie affairs. Well, that was my first thought, but typing one fingered with my left hand is such a slow process.  So that counts out blogging. Except for this one time for a quick update.

Plenty of time for research perhaps? Well no that hasn’t worked either as in our new house, (move was just 5 weeks ago) my genie office is upstairs. Actually to be more precise, it is up a ladder in the loft where my knee is not able to take me at the moment. 

I will  honour my commitment to the family history blogging challenge, but family history month will be long over by then. Until then, I am enjoying reading contributions from fellow bloggers.

  1. How frustrating. Look after yourself. Perhaps it’s time to try out some of the dictation apps to save you typing. Heal soon!

    • Good idea Fran. Hadn’t thought of that. Will check it out

      • I have tried the Dictation one for the iPad and Iphone. I cannot remember if it is free or I picked it up for free sometime. It seems to understand me some days and others it is just gobble.
