Now When I Was a Kid, Nostalgic Ramblings

Added: 11-21-2016

“Now, When I Was A Kid…” recalls a 1940s boyhood in a semi-rural town near Chicago. World War II notwithstanding, it was a swell time to be growing up in small-town America. With all the adventures of “the big city” just a streetcar ride away, Danny McGuire and his playmates enjoyed the best of two worlds.

It was an era when housewives shopped atnearby mom-and-pop stores. Folks would stop to “set a spell” on a front porch and share neighborhood news. Kids roamed anywhere, played everywhere and could be gone for hours without worrying Mombut they’d best be home in time for supper “if they knew what was good for them!” Because grown-ups sheltered smallfry from most of the bad stuff, Danny and his boyhood pals were free to revel in the sheer joy of just being kids.

Be the first kid on your block to join Danny and his pals on a fun-filled nostalgia trip back to those “good old days” when the family’s “entertainment center” was a table radio or the Philco console in the center of the living room. Order extra copies for your favorite seniors or long-ago playmates. “Now, When I Was A Kid…” is guaranteed to evoke warm memories for “kids” of any age.

Professional Genealogy : A Manual for Researchers, Writers, Editors, Lecturers, and Librarians

Added: 10-12-2016

Elizabeth Shown Mills, ed.

Professional Genealogy is a manual by professionals for everyone serious about genealogy. For family historians who want to do their own study, reliably, it describes the standards. For hobbyists, attorneys, and medical scientists who seek professional researchers, it's a consumer guide that defines quality and facilitates choices. For librarians who struggle to help a whole new class of patrons, it provides a bridge to the methods, sources, and minutiae of "history, up-close and personal." For established genealogical professionals, it offers benchmarks by which they can advance their skills and places their businesses on sounder footing. And for all those who dream of turning a fascinating hobby into a successful career, Professional Genealogy details the preparation and the processes.

Its twenty-nine chapters, written by two dozen scholars, cover the following topic areas: research skills and the analysis of evidence, writing and compiling genealogical research, the core genealogy library collection, genealogical ethics and standards, editing and publishing, and topics relating to the profession of genealogist.

"Professional Genealogy is a landmark--the field's most significant publication since 1960, when the American Society of Genealogists introduced Genealogical Research: Methods and Sources. In a sense, though, its title belies its greatest value: it offers priceless guidance to the many amateur family historians who want to ensure that their work is of high quality and enduring value."--Thomas W. Jones, Ph.D., CG, CGL, President, Board for Certification of Genealogists
