Bound for Mom, A Journey of Firsts

Welcome to the first edition of Bound for Mom. In this round of posts, the topic is A Journey of Firsts: Moms go far and along the way there are so many “firsts” such as first date, first love, first home, first child, and more. Take all of these beginnings and bundle them up into a story of how your Mom got started.

Gini Webb presents Bound for Mom posted at Ginisology.  She’s written a great story of how she and her mother emigrated from Germany to the United States.  This is Gini’s first blog carnival  entry so please take time to make a visit!

Linda Hughes Hiser presents Bound for Mom: Milepost #1–A Journey of Firsts posted at Flipside, saying, “I know of many of my Mom’s firsts from her younger life as we spent time talking about them when I first became interested in genealogy. One that interested me was that she was 29-30 before she learned how to drive a car!”

Janet Iles of Janet the Researcher gives us Bound for Mom: Milepost #1 – A Journey of Firsts.  Janet discusses her mother’s first home and first job as well other firsts.

Paula Moore presents My mom: the firsts posted at A Passage In Time. Paula has “tricked out” her posts with some fabulous digital scrapbooking pieces!  Go take a look and learn more about Paula’s mother who is now grandmother to 11 grandchildren.

Finally, I present Mom’s First Talks About Her Firsts posted at Destination: Austin Family.  My mom had so many firsts that it was difficult to choose which ones to describe.  Mom had lots of choices when she raised me and my brother and the driving force was always selflessly focusing on us and our well-being.

That concludes this edition.   Submit your blog article to the next edition of Bound for mom using our carnival submission form.  Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
