Today is a special day because it’s Western District Families’ seventh birthday. I routinely post on 12 April each year to mark the occasion but this year I didn’t know how I could make this year’s post any different from the past six birthday posts. Since I’ve been busy finishing more biographies for Hamilton’s WW1 before Anzac Day, I even considered if I would post at all. But it’s because of Western District Families I find myself writing those biographies which I find most rewarding. Therefore, I should not only acknowledge Western District Families today but also thank you for supporting me through the past seven years. I know some of you have been readers almost since the beginning.
Another reason to write a post today was that I needed to thank Laura Hedgecock and the GeneaBloggersTRIBE for recognising Western District Families’ “blogiversary”. You can read Laura’s post especially for Western District Families’ 7th Blogiversary on the link – http://geneabloggerstribe.com/happy-blogiversary-to-western-district-families/
