More About the Author

I have been researching and writing about genealogy and history for more than 20 years. My business, Generations, encompasses genealogical, military, and historical research, lecturing, and writing. My focuses are Italians in Chicago, youth education, World War I and II, and women during the wars.

I am also the Genealogy Department Manager at Casa Italia where I host genealogy and writing programs and workshops.

My current writing project is a series of books, Stories of the Lost, about my World War I and II ancestors, those who fought with them, and the women who served. This series will include a book on storytelling and writing. The first two books, Stories of the Lost and The Tiger's Widow, the sequel to To Soar with the Tigers, will be released summer 2014. In October 2013, I published a second edition of my book, To Soar with the Tigers.

In early 2012, I published a series of youth and adult genealogy textbooks called Branching Out. Each book contains 30 lessons in the basics of beginning genealogical research. In addition, I write for's Expert Series. Please feel free to click on the links and take a look at some of my work.

I also contributed articles to the journals for the National Genealogical Society, Czech and Slovak American Genealogical Society of Illinois, and Webster County Missouri Historical Museum.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found the book poorly organized and a lacking resource for teaching children about Genealogy.
Lesson 1 was too vague.
Lesson 2 gave no pedigree chart and a rambling explanation about cutting out a paper picture family tree chart.
Lesson 3 was a listing of Computer Data Bases, what was the lesson???
Lesson 4 no family group sheet were given and this should have been lesson 1.
Lesson 5 was GOOD!
Lessons 6 and 7 were too brief.
Lesson 8 was GOOD but way too large for one class session.
Lessons 9,10, 11, and 12 were poor and "so what".
Lessons 13 and 14 were GOOD.
Lesson 15 was weak.
Cross words seems to be the focus and selling a book for a high price with a very attractive cover.
