Special announcement

Plan on attending the Southern California Genealogical Writer’s Conference June 7, and Genealogy Jamboree June 8-10, 2012.   On June 7 Steve Luxenberg and I will be kicking off the Writer’s Conference with a very special “Conversation with the Author” session.  Steve will join me on stage to sit down for an in depth discussion about Annie’s Ghosts and the job of crafting such a compelling family history story. Then throughout the writer’s conference Steve will be teaching a variety of classes to help genealogist’s write their family’s stories.  It’s an incredible opportunity to learn from the best! 


I will also be teaching 4 additional classes throughout the conference weekend, so I certainly hope that you will join us there for an amazing weekend at Jamboree!
