Branching Out: Genealogy for Adults Lessons 1-30

My latest book, Branching Out: Genealogy for Adults Lessons 1-30 is now available on the Nook and Kindle.

The paperback version in in proof stage and will be released by NGS on May 9. You will be able to purchase it on CreateSpace when it is released. At this time I am not sure if there will be copies for sale at NGS.

Stay tuned for more information on this book and the Engaging the Next Generation: A Guide for Genealogy Societies and Libraries which helps societies and libraries create youth genealogy programs. That book also contains the entire 30 lessons for the 4th-8th grade student books.  I am hoping to have these available for sale at NGS.

What’s in this book? The table of contents is below. There are lessons contributed by Shelley Bishop, Caroline Pointer, Terri O’Connell, and Laura Cosgrove Lorenzana. And of course, it was edited by the great Stephanie Pitcher Fishman of the In-Depth Genealogist!
