Dreaming2015 has been so full of genealogy, I have started to dream in generations. Really. Many a night I am talking with my ancestors. It's usually happy. I only feel sad when I wake up and realize that oh, it was only a dream. Or was it?
I have been diligently writing during the first few months of the year. I continue to write the Ephemeral heritage column for Going In-Depth, a monthly digital magazine from The In-Depth Genealogist. In January, I wrote about Becky Higgins' super popular mobile scrapbooking app, ProjectLife. In February, I wrote about a cool new company, WeMontage. They make quality wallpaper photo collages. You can read my interview of the founder of WeMontage here. You can also read my interview with Valerie Elkins, a story teller and story saver.
My business website, Reconnecting Relatives, LLC, sports several new blog posts about Jewish Genealogy as well as a post about a source for finding Revolutionary War soldiers in New Hampshire. If there is a Jewish or New Hampshire genealogy research topic you would like me to cover, email me and tell me how I can help you.
March is a big month. I will be presenting my Jewish genealogy talk, From the Shtetl to the Twenty-First Century. I am excited to share modern and traditional methods unique to finding our Jewish ancestors. If you are in the neighborhood join us for the presentation at Temple Israel, Portsmouth, NH. Temple Israel was the first permanent Jewish house of worship in New Hampshire and has existed in its current home for over 102 years.
Here's to moving forward in 2015! Research on!
