100 Years in America turns six years old!

Today is the six year anniversary of 100 Years in America! It's been quiet for awhile over here and at my other genealogy blogs, but I've been busy with some fun projects outside of blogging and hope to find time to do some more writing again now that summer has hit.

A little update on what I've been up to in the world of genealogy:

Earlier this year I created and published two genealogy guides through Legacy Family Tree: the Catholic Genealogy QuickGuide™ and Croatian Genealogy QuickGuide™. I'm now at work on and very excited about my third such project. Watch 100 Years in America and the Legacy website for its announcement.

I've had the joy to present to several genealogy societies recently on the topic of "Telling the Tales of Your Family Tree: How to Share Your Research in Story Form". I hope I have inspired some of my listeners to get to work turning their pedigree charts into story plots and sharing the fascinating tales of their ancestors with their extended families. If you have a group interested in a similar presentation, please let me know.

It's going to be a long time in the works, but I've been dedicating myself to re-organizing many of the records I've collected over the years, scanning them, citing them properly, and revisiting them with new eyes for information that I might have missed on the first once-over. I've also been creating some new family timelines and am unveiling some fascinating stories. I hope to share some of those on my blogs in the near future.

It is hard to believe that 100 Years in America is celebrating its sixth anniversary! What fun I've had sharing my family's stories, and connecting with distant cousins and fellow genealogy buffs. The comments and emails from you, my readers, continue to inspire me to delve deeper into my personal ancestral search and to continue to share my love for history with others. Thanks again for stopping by!
