(Kinda like the “Changing of the Guard! LOL)
I started this blog in 2010 as a project for a class I studied in college. As the years went by, I kept posting and I found that the title CornStalk Genealogy was confusing. Chief Cornstalk has a well-documented genealogy line, and it is very confusing to researchers thinking this blog researches solely the Cornstalk family’s genealogy.
In order to change the name this time, I “googled” the phrase ‘barebones genealogy’ to make sure there is not a surname out there to confuse even more people! People use this phrase in genealogy, but from what I can tell, it is not a surname.
Everything in the blog and blog’s management is the same, just the name to keep confusion down. I also read that if I change the URL, I will lose the blog’s followers. I will figure that dilemma out later.
Thank you for all the feedback, comments, and visits to the blog. The more comments readers share, the more I learn about the different aspects of genealogy. I also hope that some of my experiences/knowledge may help another fellow genealogist break down those brickwalls that often plague us in our research.
Maybe we will find a cousin or too, as time progresses!!
