Kentucky Kindred Genealogy will be nine years old in April. I have loved every moment of sharing pictures, old wills, stories, obituaries, etc. And I will continue to do so. However, not in Kentucky. Ritchey and I are moving to the area of Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan – at the very top of the upper peninsula. If everything works as planned, we will live in a small community called Rudyard, Michigan – named for Rudyard Kipling. Harrodsburg was founded in 1774, Sault Sainte Marie in 1664. An even older area to explore. Our daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren are moving to Sault Sainte Marie, ON, Canada. We cannot be too far from them and will be just across the Saint Mary’s River.
What does this mean for Kentucky Kindred? Just a pause while we sell our home and move to Michigan. I will blog when I have time, but there will be no daily blog until we are settled in the new home. I cannot give you a time table until our home sells and we have a moving date. This is such a great adventure. I have never lived out of the state of Kentucky; Ritchey has lived all over the world, but not in Michigan.
Ritchey and I were in Michigan last week, looking at houses and exploring the area (the reason there have been no blogs for a week or so). As people keep saying, “It’s cold up there!” And it was, snow was everywhere. I’m already in love with the people who live there. They are so friendly and accepting. It will be a lovely place to live. We found a house that we love and our offer was accepted.
If everything goes through with the house, we will have 40 acres, so we intend to call it Kentucky Kindred Farm. A throw-back to our Kentucky roots and family and friends here, and the new friends we will make there. After all, genealogists know we are all one big family!
