As of today, I have just finished packaging up my very first Family History Book; which I call "The Book of Bev-Maguay". It is the fulfillment of the second part of my dream, to actually create books telling the history of my family. This first book was named for my favorite aunt to whom I have dedicated this book to. As I have stated in the closing of the book, I had made a promise to her a few years ago, that she would receive the very first copy. If it were not for her, I would not have been so successful so early on in my research. I raise my glass to you in a toast to a most wonderful woman!
I managed to complete this book in the span of six months. It covers 4 generations in my maternal Burnum & Cootware family lines. I am extremely proud of this accomplishment! I put every ounce of my being into it, and gained a new respect for just a hint of what professional authors go through! If I am patting my self on the back, or tooting my own horn, then so be it. It is not something I do often enough!
