Born out of an interest in history, ancestors, and family. I find it astounding that, because of the placement of my birth in the mid-20th C, I have memories of people spanning three centuries – between my grandparents born in the late 19th C to my own grandchildren born in the 21st C.
Maybe one day, a generation down the road, a genealogy-junkie descendent will pick up a copy from an old box of books, dust it off, and cry, ‘Eureka!”
From jottings about my ancestors begun in 2005 … to a desire to preserve and present them ‘some how” … to envisioning a book … to a LOT of editing, to self-publication. I hit the button this week and sent it to print. 440 pages. One initial copy to see how it looks. Hallelujah! Next project, please.
(Maybe I’d better save the Halleluha! until I get my copy.)
