I submitted my application to the African-American Lives Casting Call. The last step was to send a photo of myself and I did that yesterday. By Friday, applicants are supposed to know if they’ve made the next step – they will select a handful to submit video entries. Keep your fingers crossed. I would love to see a genea-blogger get this – it doesn’t even have to be me They received over 2,000 applications.
My genealogy research last week was practically non-existant. I had gotten sick and then work was so busy that I didn’t have a lot of time to devote to it. Well, that changed late last week. I received an email from a lady who is working on a family in East Tennessee that I am compiling for a friend. Our email exchanges have been great and she’s put me in touch with other researchers too. Having so much fun working on someone else’s family tree has got to be a crime!
