A couple of days ago, out of the blue, I received an email from the daughter of one of my cousins. Her grandmother was my mother's sister, Dorothy Paul Swedberg. She wanted to know if I had an email address for another cousin, and in the course of emailing back and forth, I found that both of us have an interest in our family history. She sent me some photos that I hadn't seen before, and it was fun for me to see them.
This morning I tried to email her some pictures of her grandmother and her family, but had problems with her email not accepting mine, and my email was bounced.
Not being a person who gives up easily, I thought about possible solutions for a while, and then decided to start another blog. I had no desire to fight with emails and decided that this would be a good way to share old family photos and stories.
So I spent the better part of the day setting up "Second Cup of Coffee." The name is due to the fact that so many names I tried were already in use, and the fact that I can rarely navigate until I have at least two cups of coffee. Also, I like to read some blogs in the mornings with my second cup of coffee, so it seemed appropriate.
Anyway, if you are at all interested in learning about our family history, the URL is posted in my list to the right of this page. I am having fun with this and hope that others will enjoy it as well.
