Attention beginning family historians (and anyone who knows one): We so enjoyed hearing about the genealogy search of inaugural Family Tree Firsts blogger Nancy Shively, that we want to follow along as another new researcher discovers his or her roots!
So were seeking a genealogy newbie to blog about his or her research experience on the Family Tree Firsts blog.
(If you’ve become attached to reading Nancy’s posts over the past year, as we have, she’ll keep finding and telling family stories at her Gathering Stories blog.)
We’re looking for someone who enjoys writing and is interested in his or her family history, but is just startingor hasn’t yet startedto research it.
