every man a quotation

Every Man a Quotation

Blog type: Individual family history, Kentucky genealogy

There’s a great show on TV about me. It’s called History Detectives. Maybe you’ve seen an episode or two. It’s not really about who I am, but it’s about what I am. Truth be told, the show has nothing to do with me other than to illustrate what it is that I want to do with my life. I’m a life-long history fanatic who eagerly soaks up everything there is to know about times gone by. Whether scouring documents, books, and newspapers or traipsing through cemeteries, the drive to discover clues and root out answers is why I love genealogical research. It started with my own family history when I was a kid, a project that my father now oversees. I’ve since moved on to digging for my wife’s ancestry as well as the history of the families and region in which I now live.

Surnames I am actively researching:

  • Calhoun
  • Hart
  • Knoch
  • McGregor
  • Patrick
  • Riley
  • Robak

What’s the significance of the name chosen for this blog? It’s a reference to a quote by American literary figure Ralph Waldo Emerson that goes something like this: “Every book is a quotation; and every house is a quotation out of all forests and mines and stone quarries; and every man is a quotation from all his ancestors.”

jackies gene journey

Jackie’s Genealogy Blog
http://jackiesgenealogy.blogspot.com
Blog type: Professional genealogist blogs

In March 2010 I retired, and confirmed my previous thoughts of having a genealogy business.

I plan to blog about my journey to having a successful genealogy business. Part of my definition of professional includes obtaining my credentials, but that will be down the road after I get more experience.

I plan to blog about becoming a professional, genealogy in general, credentials, genealogy education, and business education.

You are welcome to follow my journey.
