Third Anniversary of the Acadian Ancestral Home Blog



Time certainly does fly when we enjoy what we are doing.  I cannot believe it has been three years since this blog was launched.

Sincere thanks to all who have supported me over the years in all of my endeavors be it the Acadian & French-Canadian Ancestral Home web site, this blog as well as my other two blogs Lucie's Legacy and Whispers Through The Willows.

Deepest gratitude to my family for the all of their support and a shout out to our oldest daughter Rebecca who one day while home from college suggested I start a web site, gave me a few tips on how to do that and I've had an online presence for some fifteen years when I launched my first web site. Another shout out goes to our daughter Sarah for all of her encouragement as well as my husband Tony.  Without all of their encouragement and support I probably would have never "dared" to try the Internet..goodness it seemed so overwhelming all those years ago when the best email (and almost only) was with AOL and the best free web sites were with geocities.

With time, I became an Internet "grown up" and no longer feared what might go wrong if I did this or that and I then purchased server space with ICDSoft in 2002 as well as a domain name. Without realizing it I guess those of us with early web sites were sort of pioneers - I remember when my web site was only one of perhaps 4 or 5 Acadian sites.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention our son-in-law Tyler who has been my computer guru when something went wrong and I couldn't figure it out. He always came to the rescue.  I now have two sons-in-law.  So I also tap Corey once in a while when I have questions.

Since the day I came online I've met cousins I never knew existed and have made some good friends.  I love being online.  All in all, it is just wonderful to be doings that I love to do at this time in my life.  I'll be doing lots of blogging so stay tuned.. admittedly, I take some time off during the summer months but it is September and I am back with lots of discoveries to share.
