The Enduring Pursuit of Teaching Genealogy with Passion, Perseverance, and Books
I am beyond words at the publishing of my new book, "My Best Genealogy Tips: Quick Keys to Research Ancestry, Book 2." It is actually the second book. This was not my first book. I did several hardcover books for my family back when we were raising Adrianne. Adrianne even did one, and she won an award for it. It was through Heritage Makers. We got to go to Salt Lake when she was in high school.
I remember when her book came in the mail to her. To see a teenager cry from pure joy is not something you see on a daily basis. Those books helped her to appreciate her family history.
Fast forward to 2021, I put together my first two books for the public. The first one was called "My Best Genealogy Tips: Quick Keys to Research Ancestry."
Someone whom I love very much, offered to publish it for me. I took the person up on the offer. I signed the contract feeling good about our arraignment. For two years, I went without a lot. I am telling you this because of Heavenly Father and His son, Jesus Christ, I made it.
I have no hate in me. This day my thoughts turn to this person. I want to ask, "Will we once again laugh and talk to each other?" "Will we fix what exists between us and those we love?" Jesus came so that we could do that very thing. Through this trial, I discovered a greater endurance and perseverance for teaching genealogy. It was designed just for me.
In the meantime, I look forward to the public purchasing my second version, "My Best Genealogy Tips: Quick Keys to Research Ancestry, Book 2" published by Benjamin Book Publishing, LLC (Adrianne Benjamin):
