READING GENEALOGY


I’ve always been a reader, but genealogy has gotten me into some different areas of reading.  I’ve read; how to books, local history books, genealogy fiction and many others. I have a wish list of books to read, a mile long and I’d like to share what I’m reading and what I have on my wish list.

I know many of you still love to read a “real” book and I do too but when we are RVing it’s tough to bring the library along. So I decided that when I could, I’d read digital books so that way I can bring my entire library with me.

Did you know that you can get the Kindle app and it will work on other devices? Your phone, your tablet, your iPad. Find out more HERE

I Just Finished and You Won’t Want to Miss This One

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m always looking for ways to organize my approach to life. I’m actually listening to this book via Audible but decided to also purchase it from Amazon. I know I should have done it the other ways around because you can often add whispersyc to your Amazon books. Maybe next time.

The idea of the book is to create habits and build on them so they become a part of your life. I like the premise and I wanted to get the book so I really understand the process. Whether you buy the audio or the book you have access to the companion website.

 

At one of the sessions I attended at i4GG,  CeCe Moore spoke about the Paul Fronczak case.

In 1964 Dora Fronczak was in a Chicago hospital having her baby; Paul Fronczak. The following day a nurse came into her room and said she had to take the baby for a moment. That was the last time Mrs. Fronczak saw her child.

Two years later a child was found in New Jersey. Remember at that time DNA was not around and after comparing the ears of the two children (I kid you not) the FBI concluded that the child was Paul Fronczak.

In 2012 Paul Fronczak took a DNA test and found out that he wasn’t who he thought he was and so began his search for who he really was and to search for Paul Fronczak  . Enter CeCe Moore. While working on a show for 20/20 she was asked if she could crack the Fronczak case. She agreed, and after two years of research, she and her team knew who the foundling was.  I found this story so fascinating I bought the book and you can too.
