See 'Going In-Depth' - the free digital genealogy magazine today


Prepared by the team at The In-Depth Genealogist, the premier issue of 'Going In-Depth' was introduced to subscribers earlier today. Filled with over 70 pages of guest articles, regular columns and free resources it is a high-value publication for every genealogist, no matter the age, stage or focus of your research. Enjoy a new issue on 15th of each month.


I am very proud to have my regular column, The Heritage Tourist, appear on Page 20 of this premier issue, sharing information on the Freedom's Frontier National Heritage Area in that straddles the Kansas-Missouri border. I hope you will take the opportunity to read it, along with many of the other outstanding articles.


I am also very pleased to have, on Page 32, my first joint promotion advertisement of my first two novels, "Back to the Homeplace," and "The Homeplace Revisited." I have promoted them each, individually, but I have never before actually promoted them together - they are a continuing family saga story, except on The Homeplace Series blog.

Here is a preview:


 Author William Leverne Smith, is known to the IDG community as "Dr. Bill," The Heritage Tourist.

These first two novels in The Homeplace Series are based on his family history research and growing up in a small Iowa town and farm family setting. "Back to the Homeplace" is set in 1987 in a fictional community in the southern Missouri Ozarks. The story revolves around a family dilemma following the death of their matriarch and the unusual video will she left to insure the continuity of the farm, which has been in her family for over 150 years. The varied backgrounds and viewpoints of the adult children coming back to the Homeplace ignite controversy and expose long kept secrets as each family member searches for his or her share of the family legacy. While the older family members stake their claims on land and fortunes, the younger ones search for love and acceptance.

The second novel, "The Homeplace Revisited" continues the family saga in 1996. Two of the next generation return from college and a third from the East Coast to stake out their places in the community as young professionals with strong minds of their own. Old enmities reappear as two romances emerge in this ongoing family saga.
