Happy 15th Blog Birthday to Olive Tree Genealogy Blog

On February 9, 2003 Olive Tree Genealogy Blog was born. Today is its 15th birthday!

In the last 15 years, from February 9, 2003 to January 17, 2018 I've written 3,413 articles and published them here on my blog.

It's interesting to see how I started out slowly, and gradually increased my yearly publications. Then I decreased my output. This was a deliberate move on my part as, to be honest, I felt I was suffering burnout! Decreasing my blog posts to approximately 3 per week has helped and I hope has improved the quality of my offerings to my readers.
