December is here, and I am in the process of sharing a wealth of information with you all. Piedmont Trails celebrated its 4th anniversary this year, and we are so looking forward to 2022. What are the plans for your December? I hope you join us for a year-end celebration of history and genealogy. We will begin counting down the most popular articles of the year by sharing them on social media during the last week of December. But the grand finale this year will contain a ton of data filled with early Kentucky history, more Virginia surnames from the 1740s, Great Wagon Road updates from the Research Team, and lots more. Episode # 29 on the podcast will cover the early roads of Tennessee & Kentucky. The show will air by December 15th. The next Live Stream on the YouTube channel is on December 19th @ 7:30 pm. I will be sharing the available routes into Kentucky by naming various waterway routes and roads, including the exact paths from point A to point B during the colonial period.
In addition to all of this new material, I will be adding many lesser-known colonial migration roads to the site. I will also share more of my research techniques with you. My files are overflowing, and it’s time to get busy this month and share as much as possible. I will also have an article describing how early families celebrated Christmas in the colonies. These traditions vary from one area to another, and it’s part of our heritage, history, and responsibility to preserve them. There will be a few surprises in-between, so be on the lookout for those. In the meantime, I want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank You so much for joining the journey with us to the past, and GOD Bless !!
