Book Release & Planner Giveaway!

It's here! Today is the day! The release of my first ebook: The Purposeful Family Historian.  This book has been a long time in the making.  I truly can't wait for you to read it.  To commemorate the release and because I am so excited for the upcoming launch of the Historical Research Planners,  I am holding an AWESOME giveaway! Make sure you read to the bottom of this post for details on how to enter!

I believe that genealogy and family history are more than just a quest for filling out the family tree. But rather that they are an experience which is founded on purpose. 

What drives us to dabble in family history research? Is it because we love history? We love our family? We're crazy masochistic introverts who love spending long hours banging our heads against the keyboard when we run into brick walls? It's because we we feel, deep within us, a sense of purpose calling us to be the story-keeper for our ancestors. 

Using research from multiple disciplines ranging from psychology and self-improvement to project management and business skills, this book guides you toward identifying the sense of purpose which called you to family history and leverage it to have more fruitful and meaningful research time.


I want to thank everyone who took the time to give me feedback and encouragement as I have been working on this project.  Over 100 of you helped me to choose the cover art, alone!  You could practically call this a community project! 

To thank you all for all your help, I am very excited to announce a giveaway!  If you don't know what the Historical Research Planner is, go here to find out more

There is something truly magnificent about the human experience and the way events are synthesized with our senses.  It is for this reason that interviewers often use photographs when talking to their subjects, to help draw out memories that are long buried.  

If you have been wanting to work towards documenting your own personal history but haven't weren't sure where to start, this is may be the perfect place.  

This Photo Memories workbook uses easy prompts connected to photos to help evoke memories.   It has a week long program to get you started in memory journaling using photographic prompts.  

Whether you are struggling with writers block in unlocking your own story, or you want to use this book to help start a dialog with someone you love like an elderly parent or  grandparent, this book will give you the foundation to use photographs as a tool to document your own personal history.
