Welcome to Family Tree Writer!
When I first decided to write a genealogy/family history blog, it was because I wanted something to do with the ‘leftovers.’
As a free-lance writer for Wichita Eagle’s “Active Life” magazine, and now for their “Healthy Living” magazine, my “Family Tree” column often generated more information than I could include in each article.
It seemed a shame for all those great ‘leftovers’ to go to waste, so I decided to begin the blog and include old articles, plus some new topics.
Well, the new topics are taking over! What fun!
So if you’re wondering what you will find here, here’s a list of likely possibilities!
1. Articles from my Family Tree column. They include the fun, experience, and escapades of many genealogists and family historians
2. Info from my own family tree! I want to share the info that I have and hope to connect with others who have the info that I don’t!
Here are my surnames: Kline, Stocking, Jones, Smith, Breneman, Rose, Ames (I have no info about these yet, unfortunately), Hawley, Laird, McGinnis, Huff, Conver, and Corson.
So if we have the same surname, leave me a message and let’s work together to fill in the blanks!
3. My childhood memories. I wasn’t getting my “memoirs” written very fast (read at all here) and so putting a few ‘bite-size’ memories down one at a time is not only painless, it’s fun!
4. Blogging Challenges such as: Wordless Wednesday, Music Monday, Tombstone Tuesday, Treasure Thursday, and Saturday Night Genealogy Fun! These are not only a lot of fun, they also help us upload a lot of genealogy information onto the internet for others to find.
And leave me a comment! I love to connect with other genealogists and family historians!
