About the Author

Jeffrey J. Keene was born in Danbury, Connecticut, in 1947 and grew up in the town of Westport, CT, attending Staples High School. He joined the Air Force following his graduation in 1965, and specialized as a medic. While serving in Texas, Alabama, Florida, and New Jersey, he rose to the rank of sergeant and received an honorable discharge in 1969.

After returning to Westport, Keene joined the town's fire department in 1976. In his twenty-seven years in the fire service, Keene studied Fire Science at Norwalk State Technical College and attended Delaware State Fire School, where he progressed to the Fire Instructor level. Jeffrey Keene is a decorated firefighter and presently an Assistant Fire Chief with the Westport, Connecticut Fire Department.

One of the state's first Hazardous Materials Technicians, he also developed a Mock Crash Program to educate local high school students on the dangers of drinking and driving, gaining recognition for his efforts from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).

An accomplished Civil War researcher and speaker (having visited most of the major battle sites in the North and South), he has lectured on Civil War topics to groups ranging from elementary students to peer experts. His story was featured on the Arts and Entertainment Network's documentary "Beyond Death" and Uri Geller's Talk America Radio show, "Parascience and Beyond." Mr. Keene makes a strong case for reincarnation in Someone Else's Yesterday. Through years of research and travel, he has amassed compelling evidence of a former life during the American Civil War--that of Confederate General John B. Gordon. Keene resides with his wife Anna in Trumbull, Connecticut; he has two children and three stepchildren.

Someone Else's Yesterday is a most fascinating past-life account of the author, Jeffrey J. Keene, and his past life recollections as John B. Gordon, a confederate general. I must start out by saying that I absolutely do not like reading anything to do with history, so I was very hesitant at first to begin this book. I am, though, very interested in past life material and gave it a go. I was very pleasantly surprised as I was unable to put the book down and finished it within 24 hours!!
Keene's fascination began as he had a very strange experience while visiting a battlefield at Antietam, coincidently, the very same battlefield on which General Gordon was wounded. Shortly thereafter, a chance meeting with a psychic at a party, led him to further delve into the Civil War past and his connection with General Gordon.
Not only are the pictures of both Keene and Gordon incredibly and uncannily striking, but the fact that they both share the same six placement of scars on their bodies just adds that much more credibility to the entire story. Keene presents such compelling evidence, that one comes away with wonderment. Even parallels with their writing styles is pretty incredible!
Dr. Brian Weiss, in his books on past lives, also stated as does Jeffrey Keene stated, that soul groups tend to reincarnate in groups, and that it is not uncommon to find members of the same family as well as close friends, together over multiple life times. Ironically, or maybe not - several of the men in Keene's department, also share incredible striking resemblances to other confederate men who were with General Gordon during the Civil War.
The author has done a thorough job researching General John B. Gordon, tracing his lineage as a boy growing up in Georgia, all the way through his death in 1904.

This is one of the more convincing cases for reincarnation that has come across my desk in a long time. I had already heard of Jeffrey Keene before the book came out, because he is featured in the 2002 documentary video, "In another Life: Reincarnation in America" (Gold Thread Video Productions). I was impressed with his story then, so it was a pleasure to finally be able to read the book (which came out after the video.)
Jeffrey Keene did not go searching for this experience. In fact, he was skeptical at first. He makes it clear that he did not undergo hypnotic regression (which he distrusts) but rather, the memories came to him in various spontaneous ways, beginning with a strange familiarity at the sight of a battlefield. As he describes his visits to battlefields, graveyards, and other sites, he provides the reader with well-researched historical detail. In my case, that's a good thing, since I am a not a Civil War buff and would not have made the past-life connections without the background info.
Most impressive is the uncanny physical resemblance between Keene in this life, and General Gordon in the past life. (Click on the cover photo here for an enlarged version to see for yourself.) Genetically, he is no relation to the General, but, as researchers lke Ian Stevenson have demonstrated, the soul often does re-create physical characteristics in the new body. Additional look-alike sets of photos are inside the book itself. Keene also includes some photos of firefighters he has worked with in this life, who bear a strong resemblance to Civil War figures he might have known in the past life. All in all, it's a well-written book and a very good read.

I have struggled with my own reincarnation experiences my entire life and Jeff's book helped me develop the tools to deal with skeptics and believers alike. He teaches us how we are all connected and what it is like to live with this knowledge. The sources on General Gordon are well-researched and the book reads like he is sitting there telling you his story in person.

I was hooked from Page 1 to the very end, and was sorry when I finished the book; I could have kept reading and reading. Mr. Keene tells an amazing and startling story. He is so lucky to have found this past life and was able to trace and re-live it with such clarity. I know we have lived many lives on this earth, but one has to feel jealousy that another person can find out so very much about his or her own past life/lives. Mr. Keene recommends meditation before seeking out regression therapy, and I agree. May we all realize that we are travellers together through this dimension and are privileged to live on this Earth as a family.

Few people understand the courage it takes to look at a past life when one stumbles across it unexpectedly. Most do not realize the initial shock at not only having the emotions and memories, but at finding pictures of yourself and friends as well. Nor do many people truly understand the amount of fortitude and unconditional love for others it takes to write a book like this.

As I sat in my office several years ago with my own memories, along with matching pictures of over 25 people I had spontaneously recognized; I thought I was the only one who'd ever had this kind of experience. A few minutes later, after a coincidental phone call from a friend, I ran across a picture of Jeff Keene on the internet - and was very relieved to find out that I was not alone, after all.

For those not familiar with past lives, Someone Else's Yesterday is a compelling account of the discovery of reincarnation (as well as the resulting spiritual insights) from an incredibly honest and down-to-earth person - a person who could be anyone; your father, uncle, brother, or friend. For those more familiar with reincarnation, Jeff's story offers some of the most convincing physical proof ever published. And for those who've had their own past life or other extraordinary experience, Jeff's book may give you the courage and inspiration to speak about it, and maybe even tell others.
