May I Introduce To You . . . Barbara Poole


I have the pleasure of introducing Barbara Poole of the Life From The Roots blog!

Barbara has been working on her genealogy for about 20 years. In her travels, she has seen and done quite a bit, and is very excited to blog about her findings.  Currently slowing down on the research side gives Barbara more blogging time which she likes!  Barbara also looks forward to posting the many tips on her blog which she has picked up along her genealogy journey.

Barbara’s Blog and Her Family

Barbara’s husband is also into genealogy/family history (unusual, no?) They have traveled to the Salt Lake City Family History Library as well as many other libraries. Together they have visited cemeteries in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York, and as far as Missisquoi, Quebec, Canada.  Not having parents or children, Barbara considers her ancestors her “family” since she spends so much time with them!

A few of Barbara’s friends have written to her stating how much they enjoy reading her blog. One friend felt as if she was talking directly to her.

How Barbara Follows The Rest Of Us

Until recently discovering Google Reader, Barbara would follow other bloggers by way of her blogger dashboard. Google Reader is fairly new to Barbara so she is getting familiar with its many features.  If you need help Barbara, there are many of us that can get you through it!

Currently, Barbara is following about sixteen blogs a day but she anticipates that number to increase in the near future!

Barbara’s Thoughts On Starting Her Blog

One of Barbara’s biggest concerns about starting her blog was if anyone would read her posts and if she had enough information to keep posts interesting.  Additional concerns were having enough time to blog and could she withhold her opinions as well as who would be willing to help with questions.

Barbara’s hesitation on starting her blog concerned getting help and information on how to get started.  As time goes on Barbara is becoming familiar with blogging, and if she has a question, she knows there are many helpful bloggers in the genealogy community.
