history-genealogy site

This is a site where I will discuss my family genealogy research and related history. When a blog deals with a particular family group, I will try to include it in the title so uninterested people can skip it without skimming it. It is my hope to get feedback on research methods, family members and historical context from other historians, genealogists, and researchers. (c) Barbara L. de Mare 2006, 2007

I see I haven't been very successful at writing in here even with the kids gone. I am spending a lot of my free time re-organizing my house and getting stuff ready to ship to the kids--they essentially took nothing with them. I opened my e-mail this morning to a congratulatory note from one of my frequent e-mail correspondents. It seems UpFront with NGS (an e-mail newletter of the National Genealogy Society) came out this morning, and I had an article in it. I was most thrilled to see my name in print. I will be even more thrilled when I finish the article I am writing for the NGSQ(National Genealogical Society Quarterly). I sent the short version and they told me they want the article, but to do the long version as I said I could do in my transmittal letter. The short version was a proof I had written for an SAR friend for him to get a supplementary line. Getting an article published in the scholarly NGSQ seems too good to be true. I will believe it when I see it!
