GenTraveling (through books?)

brandybook

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!
