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.
These are the very first images of the Historical Research Planner packs (with more down below), and I am so thrilled to give you the first peek at the culmination of about two years of hard work, testing and perfecting!
- The Calendar Pack - to help you set goals, break them down into tasks and schedule them for increased productivity and focus.
- The Genealogy Pack - with forms to organize your entire family tree while keeping everything color coded for efficiency and organization.
- The Filing Pack - has everything you need to file your whole project, utilizing coordinating color-coded box labels, file labels and binder tabs and more.
Here is the exciting part: I am giving away three complete bundles containing ALL of the goodies from each pack! The total retail value of this bundle is $99.97! PLUS, if you are one of these three lucky winners you will get yours before anyone else does!
