It's 11:35 PM and I should be getting ready for bed but I was determined to get the beginnings of this blog going tonight.
One of the biggest hurdles in starting this blog was coming up with a good title for it. Being the non-creative person that I am, nothing came to mind. Over the weekend, I was talking to my mother about how I wanted to document the trials and tribulations of finding my ancestors via a blog but I couldn't think of a title for it. So, my mother suggested Georgia Black Crackers. It took awhile for me to warm up to it but now I think it's perfect. The Georgia Black Crackers were part of the old Negro Baseball League. Not being a baseball fan (my loves are football and basketball), I knew nothing about them. But my mother is a huge baseball fan and the maternal side of my family is from GA so you see, it all fits.
There will be a separate blog for my NC family. I know, what am I thinking trying to do two blogs, but for now thought it would be easier to separate them that way.
So family and friends, it's finally off the ground. I hope you don't get too bored reading it and can learn a bit about our family along the way.
