 Good day, and welcome to the new year! As I write this it is still late December 2012, but from your perspective it is January 1st or later of at least 2013.  As I mentioned (will mention) in my Dec 31st post, the purpose of these posts is Cousin Bait - for people who will be searching on the names in the lists at some later point in time.  So, it may be that you are finding this years (perhaps many years, as digital media is theoretically good forever!) after I wrote it, or you may be one of my regular blog readers catching it as it posts initially. 

Either way, I started writing these posts in November of 2012, so I have months to go to fulfill the goal of one post for every day.  As always, I welcome your contacts in the Comments on this post.  I will be notified, and I do respond.   Please feel free to contact me with any questions or information you have about any of the names I post in these lists!

Happy New Year!
