about northwest journals

North because I fantasize about living in a log cabin in northern Michigan. People traveling north buy anoraks and umiaks to survive the cold. When they come back, they write stories and poems about their travels.

West because that is the direction in which reality has propelled me. Flushing::Kalamazoo::Chicago. People traveling west seek fortune and fame. When they come back, they write memoirs about their failures and successes.

  2. Thanks, Angela! I’ve found an article giving 20 suggestions for breaking through dead-ends, if you’d like the link. I actually used it and succeeded in breaking though my great grandparents’ dead-ends.

      1. The article has been taken off the website, Deb. But I’ve scanned it and can send it to you. My email is on the site; send me an email and I’ll send the scan to you. If anyone else wants it, just let me know.

        Oh! And I was wrong it has 41 suggestions for breaking thru dead-ends.

  3. I think this sounds great! I can’t wait to hear more about what you uncover. I’ve researched one branch of my family tree back many generations, but the other side seems to dead-end at my great-grandparents. I love to hear people’s stories!

Tell me about it.
