Family History Research

Book and ProGen Update

I cannot believe December is half over already! I’m thrilled to report my Bob Brouk book is done and published. I’m waiting for my proof to arrive to finalize things. As soon as it is I’ll post a link. My goal was to tell his story so his memory would live on and I have done that so I’m very pleased. I am already starting on my second book which I hope to have out by summer. Chicago researchers will hopefully find this book very useful.

ProGen is moving along. We had a great discussion at the beginning of the month about our personal libraries. We each had to share the books we thought were the most valuable and the books we still wish to add to our libraries. There were many books almost all of us owned such as The Source or The Researcher’s Guide to American Genealogy. Another popular book that was listed as owned or wanted was Bringing Your Family History to Life through Social History. This book is out of print but if you search Abebooks.com you may find it for under $75.00. I landed it for $30 a couple of weeks ago. Used of course but in great condition. Check them out if you are looking for out of print books.

This month in ProGen we are reading about writing reviews. I have yet to complete my reading so need to get on that. The month has just flown by.  I’ll post another update in early January after our discussion.
