In Their Footsteps

As I talk to people about my book, Visiting Your Ancestral Town, I get to hear so many great stories from people who have traveled to their own ancestral towns. So I thought it would be fun to give people a place to share their experiences.

I’ve started a new section of my blog called In Their Footsteps where I’m inviting guest bloggers to tell their stories about visiting places where their family once lived. If you’ve got a story, I’d love to hear from you!

  • Stories should be no longer than about 1,000 words. (Though if you have a hard time telling your story in that length, send it on to me anyway and we’ll work it out.)
  • Stories should include at least 3 photos that go along with the story
  • Please include a short bio of you (about 50 words)
  • Send everything to me at carolyn[at] (Of course, substitute @ for [at] – this is just my low-tech way of foiling spammers.)

Let the stories begin!
