More Genealogy Editing!

I am very excited about my new volunteer position!  I have been confirmed as the new editor of The Baobab Tree, the quarterly journal of the African American Genealogical Society of Northern California.  The editor is also the chairman of the society's Journal Committee.  I'll be taking over from Annette Madden, the wonderful lady who has been the editor for the past two years.  I'm really looking forward to continuing the great work that has gone before me but finding a way to put a little of myself in the publication also.

And speaking of editing, the latest issue of ZichronNote has just been sent to members of the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society.  This issue has two articles about successful searches for family:  one sparked by an envelope addressed to a mystery aunt, and the second by long-guarded secrets that were finally shared.  There is also a review of the recently published DNA USA:  A Genetic Portrait of America, which tells us that the book is not quite what the title promises.

So with these two publications and The Galitzianer, I'm now going to be putting out a journal every month.  I guess you can take the girl out of publishing, but you can't take the publishing out of the girl ....
