As we move into 2013, Forgotten New England has been live for a year-and-a-half, and has surpassed 300 followers. The official count remains just north of 260 followers, including just WordPress and Twitter followers. Thanks to all subscribers and to those who stop by regularly. Your views and comments are much appreciated! Thanks too for sharing the blogs and posts through social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter, and myfamily.com. And a special thanks to the New England Historic Genealogical Society for featuring my blog in The Weekly Genealogist in January 2013, and to WGBH-TV’s nightly local news program Greater Boston, for featuring my blog during its February 7, 2013, discussion of the Valentine’s Day Storm of 1940.
The initial scope of the postings here has been heavily weighted toward Eastern Massachusetts, and more specifically, the Merrimack Valley. I’ve seen that there’s a heavy interest in genealogy out there; so, I’ve been trying to add more genealogy content, which has expanded the blog’s reach out of New England and into Portugal’s Madeira Island, Ireland’s Ulster region,Montreal, and the Azores. I hope to continue this line of posts and cover other areas of the world. I’ve got some posts in mind for Swedish genealogy that should be coming online soon.
I’ve also added some initial posts related to other areas of Massachusetts and New England. I’ll be continuing these.
Are there any topics that you would like to see covered?
