Family trees have to start with someone. Mine starts with a soft-spoken city dweller who blogs to gain a writing and genealogical community.
After 20-odd years of either letting my passion for writing sit idle or allowing my job to dilute it, I find I still fit in my creative writing pants. Nothing inspires me more than the stories I uncover when I research my family tree, so The Relative Cartographer is a little fiction and a little nonfiction.
It takes quite a bit of time to research my people enough to write about them, so to fill space in between you’ll find short fiction pieces, some genealogy-related and some purely from my imagination. To gather up all of my genealogy posts to read, click on the link “true family stories” in the banner up above. For fiction, click the “not so true” link.
