    In every family, someone ends up with “the stuff.” It is the goal of The Family Curator to inspire, enlighten, and encourage other family curators in their efforts to preserve and share their own family treasures.

    and the Winners Are. . .

    Jenna, Desperately Seeking Surnames, and Jo Arnspiger, Those Who Went Before, have each won a copy of RootsMagic4 genealogy software program in The Family Curator's Blogger's Alamanac Contest.

    Jenna and Jo were selected in a completely random drawing held this afternoon. All entries were printed out on slips of paper and tossed into an "authentic" straw Shaker hat. Mr. Curator closed his eyes and picked the two lucky winners.

    Coincidentally, both winners entered posts on the Blogger's Almanac baseball theme. Jenna wrote Plaaaaaaaaaay Ball in honor of her son's high school baseball career, and Jo wrote My Mother, Baseball, and My Grandfather recalling her mother's love of the sport.

    I have never been much of a sports fan myself but baseball seems to be something I can understand, and I loved reading their articles about families and the All-American pastime. If you missed them last month, do take a minute to visit their blogs and read their heartwarming stories.

    Thank you, everyone, for downloading the Blogger's Almanac, for sending me your kind and encouraging comments, and for participating in the Contest. I hope you find the Almanac's blogging ideas helpful in sparking your family history writing, and I would love to hear more about the kinds of themes you like most.

    The May Issue of the Blogger's Almanac is "in the works" and should be available as soon as I unpack from the National Genealogical Society conference. Stay tuned for the latest edition.
