January Jobs

Time. What is time? Essentially, it is movement. It can be a period, i.e.: stage, phase, an interval. It can be an occasion: hour, moment, an instance. It can be an era: age, period, epoch, generation. It can also be a schedule: timetable, program, plan, and organize. But in regard to creating your family museum, time is a count, i.e.: tally, computation, reckon, regard, view, hold, deem, esteem, weigh, signify. In other words, time to make your mark, be significant, make a difference and be important.  WOW!

In ancient Roman religion and myth, the month of January is named after Janus, the god of beginnings and transitions, and thereby of gates, doors, doorways, passages and endings. He is usually depicted as having two faces, since he looks to the future and to the past.

So as the month of January sets in, you started to make schedules and begin those resolutions you made, which I hope, after reading this blog, has encouraged you to taking the first step in creating Your Family Museum.  

Perhaps this is a good time to review what you have already read in how to go about starting this truly wonderful endeavor. Start with postdate 8/11-12/2014: “Be your own curator,
Part I & II.”  
Start making those lists: decide, sort, keep, display, save and store. Answer the questions, and after you have asked yourself, ask all the members of your family. When you done with this, read the next post, 8/15/2014: How to Build and Where to locate Your Family Museum.  And Enjoy!

Happy New Year

On this first day of the New Year, we try to put into action our New Year’s Resolutions if any were made. I use to make many promises to myself and as predicted, did not follow through on any of them. However, I did conquer, and that is saying this mildly, the start of creating a blog on Our Family Museum. It hasn’t been quite a year yet, but at least it is still going strong and most important, I still enjoy writing it. And I hope you have enjoyed reading it.
Now, as I sit and ponder what I will blog about in the New Year, I am getting this picture in my head of doing things a little differently. What my intensions have been all along is to blog about preserving family history and how to go about it. And as you have read, I feel the blog does offer a lot information at the same time entertaining, and I will keep this going, but I am going to offer more. So keep clicking on my blog and I guarantee you, you won't be disappointed.
Until next post, enjoy the beginning of this New Year and remember, save a bit of your family history everyday.
