    I've been meaning to thank you for your blog. I found it on geneabloggers recently. I'm not sure if I'll write a book, but I want to create short stories or articles about individual ancestors. Your blog articles are very thought-provoking for me.

    Thanks, Denise!
    I do encourage you to work on your short stories, sketches and articles. Getting the stories you want to preserve down on paper ( or should we be saying recorded as a digital record?) is the important thing. Sometimes it's surprising how they turn into a book in the process. Good luck!
