The legacy of ‘The Last Lecture’ published in Digital Genealogist

Monday, 8 Sep 2008 | by Mark Tucker
The Last Lecture

 

The September/October 2008 issue of Digital Genealogist was sent out this last weekend and I am pleased to announce that I have an article published in it.  The article is titled The legacy of ‘The Last Lecture’ and talks about the story of Randy Pausch, a Carnegie Mellon University professor, that inspired millions through a talk he gave while he was dying of pancreatic cancer.  The content of his lecture and some of the backstory has been released as a book called The Last Lecture.

I first heard Randy’s story back in April 2008.  Soon after that I felt compelled to write about how his story inspired me and how I felt it related to family history.  When I wrote the article, I gave no thought about publishing it.  After a few months, I felt like I wanted to share it with others so I contacted Digital Genealogist who agreed to publish it.

Barnes & Noble Genealogy Magazine Search

Although this was disappointing, I see this as an opportunity for the various genealogy and family history magazines to contact Barnes & Noble and get their magazines listed. I am not sure what the trade-offs would be to have your magazine included on the Barnes & Noble site, but it might just be worth it for the extended exposure.  The following print magazines come to mind that could be included on this site:
