This Blog focuses on Ancestor Stories, both the stories themselves about my family’s ancestors and discussions of where they come from and how to prepare and share them. These stories may be non-fiction or fiction – we will always tell which is which, of course. Also see my KINNICK blog and The HOMEPLACE Series Blog, left sidebar, scroll down.

National Heritage Areas are for all of us
National Heritage Areas
There are now 49 National Heritage Areas around the United States. We should each include a National Heritage Area visit in our summer (and year around) vacation plans just like we have historically included the National Parks. Here is an excellent (short 4 min - that helps make it excellent!) video I hope you will watch.
Here are two URLs to visit, when you are done, to read more about the locations of the 49 locally-based National Heritage Area. If you have visited one or more, I hope you will leave a comment.
