Five Minute Family History

Save the stories! Become a story-catcher during your coffee break!

Welcome!  I'm glad you found me. I hope we can have fun here and do something really important, too. Doing family history isn’t only about visiting graveyards and documenting all the begats of dead ancestors, it’s also capturing living memory and creating a story your descendants will be eager to read.   So set aside a few short minutes–with morning coffee, at lunchtime or before bed–and write, type or speak fast!

I just sent off the galley proofs for my second book in my Family History Mystery series. The book which features a movie reel from the 1940s and my protagonist genealogist Sophreena McClure and her assistant Esme Sabatier discover some clues to a modern day murder in the old film.  The book is due for release in March, 2014.
