Oh, I love it when I start to catch up on my schedule! The February 2014 issue of ZichronNote, journal of the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society, and the Winter 2014 issue of The Baobab Tree, published by the African American Genealogical Society of Northern California, are both done and will be mailed soon to the societies' respective members. ZichronNote is on schedule, and Baobab should really have come out in January, but considering the previous two issues were two months behind, one month late is a distinct improvement.
Twelve Years a Slave generated interested in reading the original book.
ZichronNote and The Baobab Tree are each a benefit of membership for joining the respective genealogical society. Articles for both are accepted from both members and nonmembers. If you submit an article that is published, you will receive a copy of the issue with your article even if you are not a member (but think about joining!). Submissions may be articles, reviews, graphics, or almost anything genealogy-related, both original and previously published, and must be relevant to either Jewish or black family history research, respectively. Submission guidelines for The Baobab Tree, including deadlines, are available online. For details about submissions to ZichronNote, write to me for more information.
So send me an article! Can't you tell I love to read?
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
