Family History Writing Challenge

I've signed up to participate in the Family History Writing Challenge, organized by Lynn Palermo, The Armchair Genealogist.Click here to learn more about the challenge. I have committed to writing 200 words or one hour every day from February 1 to February 28.  

My goal for  this blog was to organize the material in Great Grandma Belle Tisdale Booksh's collection of letters, photos, documents, and clippings for a book.  The plan was to post one document a week with a transcription and related photos and historical background. Then I got pulled into doing research on the Civil War in Louisiana, a fascinating subject. Next the holidays came along and took up all my spare time. I'm hoping this challenge will get me back on track to posting weekly. 

As a bonus to visiting the Family History Writing Challenge site I discovered Lynn's Family History Blog to Book Project which looks like it will be a big help as well.

So stay tuned for next week's post on Belle's cousin Nathan Tisdale (1831-1901).
