Let me also introduce you to this week’s GenTraveler…
Dana has been doing genealogy for 18 years and specializes in Texas and the American Southeast.
How often do you go GenTraveling?
Not as often as I’d like, but I love visiting extremely old cemeteries and American Colonial history sites.
Do you have any tips on how to make GenTraveling a success?
Make sure that camera is charged and bring a companion to share in the adventure. Top it all off with a drink at the local watering hole, a place which may have its own unique history!
What types of repositories are your favorite to visit while GenTraveling?
Libraries and archives. The older the records the better!
Tell us about your favorite GenTraveling excursion.
My favorite GenTraveling experience by far was a visit to the Vicksburg National Military Park in Vicksburg, Mississippi. It was a solemn experience to see the memorials and learn the history. The Battle of Vicksburg was a turning point in the Civil War and it was surreal to walk the grounds.
