Getting Your Name in Print is Better Than in Lights

I knew well over a month ago that there would be a segment about me in the upcoming Family Tree Magazine, but seeing it in print... that was way too cool.  In the May/June issue of Family Tree Magazine I am in a feature called "5 Questions With..."  This is a column by the Genealogy Insider, Diane Haddad, where each issue they feature a member of the genealogy community.  Last months genealogy mover and shaker was Dick Eastman.  They featured me as the Family Tree Firsts Blogger.

To top it off, I have told as many people as possible in the past 10 minutes since rushing home from the mail box.  Sad, but true.  You only get so many chances in this short life to make your mark and get noticed.  I will be relishing in this one for some time to come.  Oh, and also saving it for future family historians.  One day someone may want to follow in my footsteps after all.


  1. Congratulations Shannon! It is a wonderful thing to see one's name in print. I have been following your blog and love it!

  2. Thank you! It is not a large piece, but it is still neat to be featured like that. Gave me a confidence boost to say the least.

  3. Great! Congrats. You should have pride for being honored in such a way.
