Pre-Release Book Signing Added to Genealogy Day Lineup! – Tuesday’s Tip

Jennifer Hjennifer holikolik will be joining us for a stories of the lostpre-release celebration of her new book Stories of the Lost at this year’s Genealogy Day on Saturday, May 3 from 1-2 p.m. Debuting on V-E (Victory in Europe) Day on May 8, Stories of the Lost chronicles the lives of servicemen who fought for freedom and never returned alive. Although buried in foreign territories, the government extended the services of individuals to identify the deceased, collect their belongings, and whenever possible, to send what they had found back home to their families. Stories of the Lost combines thoughtful case studies and research together to celebrate the lives a few good servicemen, and to give genealogists a method of researching their own family heroes.

To celebrate both V-E Day and the debut of this title, Genealogy Day participants will have a chance to win two copies of the book, and to have them signed by the author.  Stories of the Lost is priced at $25, and cash, check, and credit card payments are accepted. Jennifer will also have a limited supply of her popular Branching Out: Genealogy for Kids series which will be priced at $15-$30 each.

Speaker Marsha Peterson-Maass will be signing copies of her two books – Fundamentals of Genealogy: Basics for Everyone and Fundamentals of Genealogy: Medical Family Tree Workbook.  Genealogy Day participants will have a chance to win two of Marsha’s books, and have them signed during the lunch period from 1-2 pm.  Both Fundamentals of Genealogy titles are discounted 20% for this program, and priced at $20 each.   Cash and check payments are accepted for these items.
