The power of the blog

I was contacted yesterday by an individual who was able to fill in some of the blanks in my ongoing search for information about my wife’s family. You may recall that we hit some dead ends in Calitri searching for her great grandfather, as his name is very common in the family. We were also unable to find information about his wife. This was because, my source tells me, she was actually born in another town.

What’s cool about this is that I never would have found this person and his information without this blog. It’s a two way communication tool. The part that makes it two way isn’t necessarily the technology, although things like comments and discussion areas help; it’s more about asking the question in the first place.
