    Caroline Pointer, genealogy and technology artist at 4YourFamilyStory, writes

    . . . after reading her book, How to Archive Family Keepsakes, I have to say she rocks it in her book. . .
In fact, in reading her book you can tell it is her passion, which is always awesome.

    With her simple how-to's, checklists, and forms, when you purchase Denise's book {Not if. I'm that confident you will purchase this book.}, you will not only be motivated to preserve your family's keepsakes, but you will have the tools to go through that box {Or if you're like me, boxes} of your family's 'stuff' you have tucked away in that closet in your guest bedroom that you keep telling yourself you need to go through and do 'something' with.

    Moreover, what I really appreciate is how Denise writes her tips and suggestions in How to Archive Family KeepsakesShe gives you many options in her preservation suggestions, and she does so in a way that makes you feel like she's right next to you sharing her knowledge.

    Lynn Palermo, family history writing coach at The Armchair Genealogist, comments

    There comes a time in your research when you decide to take all the documents, artifacts and photos you’ve accumulated throughout the years and formulate them into stories. One of the biggest obstacles we face as writers is the overwhelming task of getting all that information organized so we can begin to write. . .

    After reading Denise’s book it became clear to me she had written a book that stood at the core of helping authors prepare to write.

    footnoteMaven, Editor Publisher of the popular online photography magazine, Shades of the Departed, writes 

    You can use the book for quick answers, efficient archival workflow, digital savvy, collecting strategies, and most importantly confidence. Confidence that no matter what you acquire you have an answer as to how to proceed.

    I keep the book on my desk and refer to it often. Treat yourself! It is so worth it.

    Blog Book Tour Visits Moultrie Creek Gazette: How to Read Your Ancestor Like a Book

    How to Archive Family Keepsakes Blog Book Tour Author Guest Post 

    I am delighted to welcome Denise May Levenick, The Family Curator, and author of How to Archive Family Keepsakes to the Gazette as part of her Blog Book Tour. She has brought a bit of her expertise with her to share with us here. After reading her article, stop by Moultrie Creek Books to check out my earlier interview with Denise and my review of her book.

    Moultrie Creek and The Family Curator share a love of tech gadgets, e-readers, and most especially, books! When Editor Denise Olson and I chat about blogging or family history, somehow the conversation always turns to what we’re reading and what’s waiting for us on our bookshelves.

    Inherited books bring new challenges and new information to family historians. Experienced genealogists recognize the value of noting literacy from census records and document signatures, but have you considered what you can learn about your ancestor from the choice of books in their library? (continue reading at Moultrie Greek Gazette). . .
