Mesa FHExpo 2010 Contest: Entry #7

I feel my approach to Family History is Innovative. I am committed to acknowledging connections across the generations—past, present, and future– and igniting a sense of extraordinary purpose in individuals in THIS generation.

When I worked as a calligrapher, I visited with countless people who felt the impact of heart-wrenching disappointments, bickering, contention, divorce, trauma, abuse, addictions, lack of finances, illness, conflict, self-doubt, death in the family, and other adversities. The last thing that they wanted to do was turn back and look at all that pain. They felt their family was a disappointment and wondered why they were a part of it. Now, I seek to show those great people that painful family experiences don’t have to keep them from enjoying Family History. I seek to provide encouragement, insight, and be a catalyst for happy changes in family lines.

In an attempt to bridge the generations by reaching back, as well as looking forward, I created the website and three blogs: gives those who want to embark in genealogy access to news, research, and resources. contains posts that are intended to help lives change in this generation—thus strengthening family trees for years to come. contains an original and unique method of journal writing to document the history-in-the making that occurs as individuals take deliberate, specific steps to glean wisdom from the past, live mindfully in the present and prepare confidently for the future. These are people with courage who are ready to grow in spite of insecurity frustration and fear, with an intention to strengthen themselves in THIS generation.

I have a firm conviction that Family History includes history-in-the-making. I’m striving to help others maintain that larger view as we discuss genealogy and family history. Innovative in my own way? I think so.
