May 2012 marks our blog’s second birthday. Two years ago we began with our first post “Hello world!” More than 110 posts later we are celebrating our second birthday!

We looked forward to sharing the State Library’s window on the world of family history with you and we hope we have achieved this over the past two years with regular posts, a number of guest bloggers and a wide variety of genealogy and family history topics covered.
