I am Janice Branch Tracy, Graveyard Rabbit of Attala, Holmes, and
Over the course of my career with the U. S. Government, I lived in six cities in four states. Now retired, I write from my home in
About ten years ago, I began researching my family history, beginning with only my father’s name and my mother’s maiden name. Although I had known since I was a child that both families had lived in
By mid-year 2008, my book was slowly taking shape, but I still needed some information that was still “out there” in
After reading Terry’s blog and after perusing some of the many other geneablogs I found on the internet, I wondered why I had not thought about writing a blog myself. After a bit of thought, I decided that blogging might be a better approach to sharing my family information than publishing the book I had planned. And the rest is now history. I became an overnight blogger, with no experience, when I began writing at Attala County Memories. Since then, I have written over 100 posts and have had several thousand visitors. I still have lots to learn about internet publishing, but I continue to find blogging both challenging and rewarding.
When Terry invited me to become a Charter Member of The Association of Graveyard Rabbits, I immediately jumped (or was that “hopped”) at the chance to become a “rabbit.” Within a short time, and so typical of rabbits, my original GYR blog, The Graveyard Rabbit of Attala County, multiplied. Now I write two more, The Graveyard Rabbit of Holmes County, and The Graveyard Rabbit of Madison County. Within a few weeks, I plan to introduce The Graveyard Rabbit of Dancing Rabbit Creek, which will cover cemeteries in several counties in Mississippi that were formed as a result of the treaty by the same name signed with the Choctaw Nation in 1832.
I hope you will take the time to visit my blog. I continue to learn so much from reading your blogs, and every day I consider it an honor to be associated with such a talented group of researchers and writers.
