Missing Joan Miller

It has been a long time since this poor little blog has been posted to. Joan Miller started it (with much enthusiasm, I might add) and when she became ill she asked me to “temporarily” take it over for her.

I think we all had high expectations that she would return to the task in time, but it was not to be.

Sadly, Joan passed away on 4 January 2013 after a brave battle. You may read her obituary, here. Her cheery smile will be missed.

There is no way I can fill Joan’s capable shoes in the care of this blog but I will give it my best shot. Any ideas for content can be messaged to me in the comments section – and thanks!

  1. Hi

    News of her passing has gone through the genealogy community with sadness. She will be missed.

    If you have news (press releases etc) for release, send it to me, and I will post it on my blog http://www.genealogycanada.blogspot.com

    I look forward to getting to know you, Dawn, as I am a Calgarian and a member of the AFHS. I attended a DNA SIG meeting about a year ago, as a result of Joan’s post on social media, and did not realize I would not see her again. I am happy to support your efforts, and will do what I am able via social media. Thank you for taking on this role.
