Jennifer Holik, of Generations, will launch a brand new series of books in the Branching Out series on March 28, 2012.  Each book contains 15 lessons, teaching the basics of genealogical research to children. On this day you will be able to purchase the textbook in paperback form, PDF, or PowerPoint. The paperback will be available on CreateSpace. The PowerPoint and PDF versions will be available on the Generations E-Junkie store. The PowerPoint version has the same content as the book but with a few extras. It was designed for the visual, hands-on learner in mind.

Be sure to sign up for the Generations newsletter to stay in touch with what’s going on with Generations. This is only the beginning of a major kids’ series. Also sign up for the series editor, Stephanie Pitcher Fishman’s newsletter at Corn and Cotton. This year Generations will be collaborating with Corn and Cotton on more educational resources. You will want to know what she is working on as well!

The following will be released March 28 and the links will be live on the Generations website.

I was trying to catch up on my blog reading and read a post on Amanda’s Anaetheum called “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? Cruise Reads.”  Amanda posted as she was about to embark on the Legacy Family History Cruise.

What am I reading? I just finished Nicholas Sparks’s The Best of Me. Get your tissues out if you decide to read that one. Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand is sitting on my desk now ready to read.

Genealogy books I’m reading include Getting the Most Out of RootsMagic 4 and Finding Italian Roots.

So I wonder what you are reading this week. Post your book list in the comments. They can be genealogy or non-genealogy related books.
