Finally–after over 20 years of research and three years of actual writing–my book is in production. It has consumed much of my time over the last two years, and now I’m looking forward to seeing it in print. I’m looking for a late September or early October release date, but it could be early November. Information about the book is available on my website: http://www.historical-footprints-2010.com
It seems as though I put one away and start working on another. I have another book in mind that I’ve been working on for years, and have already begun updating my research. Funny how you leave a family line for a while and then discover a whole new framework in process when you return. That is certainly the way it is with my tree. It won’t take me as long to update my information. The book under production involved three major family lines: Inghram, Dean and Stillians along with a number of related groups. So it was a tremendous project. The book I’m working on now will not be as complex and will be quite similar to my first book: The Sum Total: A Search for Levi Clay (1843-1917) and Jesse James (1847-1882). It will also focus on my mother’s side of the family.
And so I begin another project as the completed endeavor makes it debut.
