Although I WISH I could GenTravel continuously, sometimes I have to stay home and do other things. Actually that’s fine. I have tons of hobbies to keep me busy – probably too many. Besides genealogy I love to ride my bike, play racquetball, do a bit of crafting, take and edit photographs, play the piano, blog and especially READ!
I just finished reading Brady Heineman’s book Whispers in the Branches. It had a heavy genealogy theme which is why I picked it up in the first place. If any of you have read this book, you’ll understand why I had to smile when I read The Hungry Genealogist’s blog today! It’s because the main character of the book GenTravels to Georgia – to the town where her father’s family has lived for generations and there are a few humorous references to sweet tea. I guess it’s a Southern ‘thing’.
I always enjoy books with a genealogy aspect. PLEASE, please, please send any such book recommendations my way!!! And when I read any, I’ll try to remember to blog about them. It’s one way I like to GenTravel (by proxy of an imaginary fictional character) to different parts of the world. If the book prepares me for real-life travel to that location – even better!
