We’ve talked often about getting younger folks involved with family history and sometimes we’ve lamented about the seeming lack of interest on the part of young people. We’ve been disabused of that latter notion by great folks like Jessica of Jessica’s Genejournal.
And today I want to introduce my readers to Jeanna (pronounced like “Gina”), whose new blog is called RootsReading. She describes herself as a “a twenty-something African-American woman who, in the process of tracing her lineage, hopes to gain a better understanding of herself. “
Jeanna is just getting started with her research and is going through all the exciting and frustrating issues we all confronted early on. As for blogging, in her latest post, Jeanna wonders about balancing family privacy with the desire to discuss her discoveries publicly. We’ve all been there, too!
Please stop by RootsReading, meet Jeanna, and share with her your experiences!
