What a pleasant surprise to learn that a review of my recently published memoir, GOT PROOF! My Genealogical Journey Through the Use of Document (The Write Image 2013) was published in the December 2014 issue of National Genealogical Society Quarterly.
The NGSQ reviewer captures what many genealogist and family historians all go through during their research.
“Bewilderment, frustration, hopefulness, and elation — these emotions frequently attend the researcher’s journey to prove elusive ancestors. Family historian Michael Henderson has published an enjoyable and educational account of his journey of discovery . . . Henderson reviews the many name variations necessary to be reconciled from documents written in Spanish, French, and English. He describes the iterative, nonlinear process of piecing information to prove that Mathieu and Agnes are his ancestors . . .”
