No Looking Back: Why I'm Choosing Myself in 2016!

Well, here we are again, saying goodbye to another year. I would say that 2015 was not the best year for me, but not the worst year either. 



For the past several years I have done some "Year in Review" posts reflecting on happenings and accomplishments, and outlining goals for the New Year. I went back and read my post from last year, "2014 Year in Review: Looking Back and Moving Forward," and overall I did a pretty good job with what I outlined for 2015, coming up short really in just one area: Location (I wrote, "One of my hopes is to relocate somewhere other than where I currently reside. I have one specific locality in mind, but am leaving my options open"). For a whole host of reasons that did not happen, and so it stays on the list for 2016.

I am grateful for many blessings in both my personal and professional life. In 2015 I traveled a lot. I had plenty of opportunities to speak about genealogy to wonderful groups in Salt Lake City, Indianapolis, Fountain Hills Arizona, Pittsburgh, Connecticut, and Iowa. I also presented a number of webinars and coached family history writers in two Genealogy Writing Intensives. I wrote my tenth book (I can't say much about it because it has not yet been officially released by the publisher, but it is on genealogy and a subject I enjoy writing and teaching about). I worked hard in 2015 and I anticipate doing more of the same in 2016, but with one big change:  I am choosing myself!

What exactly does that mean? Well, I recently read a book called Choose Yourself! by James Altucher and it really opened my eyes. It talks about how we're all suffering from "post-societal traumatic stress disorder." The global economy has shifted and society is changing and we need to be able to make that shift to succeed. The basic premise is to shake off what we are taught--that "we are not good enough" and about having the confidence to make things happen for yourself, not waiting around for things to come to you, and not asking permission. There is so much in this book about exploring our creativity and using our entrepreneurship muscles. 

And, this is exactly what I want to do in 2016. I am not being selfish when I say this (trust me, anyone who knows me well knows that I am not a selfish person--this is evidenced in the fact that I spent 14 years as a primary caregiver for my parents during major illnesses, making many personal sacrifices and passing up a number of professional opportunities. And I have no regrets--I would do it all again in a heartbeat). But it is time for me to make some real changes in how I live and work.  

A few areas I will be working on include:

  • Downsizing my physical living space and possessions.
  • Choosing work that fulfills me rather than just taking on any project or doing work for little or no payment, or that doesn't fit my current business model. 
  • Focusing more on my own writing (including more posts to this blog) and self-publishing 
  • Expanding my work inspiring genealogists and family history writers by offering more personalized instruction through online courses and virtual learning experiences. 
  • Making more time for personal genealogy research and for enjoying life.

See you later, 2015. I am so ready to start choosing myself in 2016!

Are You Ready to Write that Family History? Get Started in January with Genealogy Intensive™ – The Write Stuff Spring 2016

Do you need a push to finally write that family history book in 2016? Will weekly motivation from writing coaches and fellow writers help you to put those fingers to the keyboard? 

Then, don't miss your chance to sign up for The Write Stuff Spring 2016 Genealogy Intensive™  offered through HackGenealogy.com. In this six week, interactive course (11 January - 15 February 2016), you will build your skills as a writer and learn about the tools and techniques to produce a quality family history. [And yes, the course starts in January, but we are calling it the Spring 2016 session - we prefer to "Think Spring" instead of Winter!]




Previous sessions (including the Fall 2015 installment) of The Write Stuff sold out quickly! Reserve your spot for the new session now by clicking here to register.



Why Am I Doing This?

As avid genealogists, we collect names, dates, places, and sources, and these are all essential to us learning about who we are. But a total family history is so much more just charts and graphs, boxes and lines, or references. Writing about our ancestors and our heritage gives context, meaning, and purpose to all of the facts we have collected, and I want to help you to learn how to lose the intimidation and let go of your fears about writing so that you can dig deeper into your family stories. As a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh’s Creative Nonfiction Writing program, I learned from many of the best in the business, and I have spent years building my own career as freelance writer. I want to share my experience with you.

Why the “Intensive” Concept?

In the genealogy field, there are countless opportunities for learning about what records are available and how to search them. In addition, there are many study groups out there to help you build upon the methodology and research practices. However, when it comes to writing, there is not the same in-depth type of instruction readily available. Even presentations given at conferences and via webinars are typically only lectures that will “tell” you about some of the key techniques, but don’t always “show” you what to do (I know this because I have given many of these presentations). With six weeks of concentrated focus in this “intensive” format, you will receive “take away” assignments to put into practice what you learn, and get the kind of one-on-one interaction with the instructor that is not always possible in a conference or webinar setting.

Specifically, in “The Write Stuff” experience, you will:
  • Learn writing skills and techniques to produce a quality family history
  • Build on the skills each week.
  • Focus on getting a working draft.
  • Receive constructive and helpful feedback.
  • Learn to overcome fears and anxiety about writing.
  • Have fun!

Through on-line instructional sessions, weekly assignments, and collaboration with other participants, attendees will have access to an instructor with more than 24 years of writing experience, who will teach key nonfiction writing techniques used to produce a “can’t put down” family history that will keep the pages turning for generations.

The intimidation-free learning environment will offer you the chance to find your voice, and write without worry or fear that you are doing something wrong. You will learn the essential skills you need to be accurate and thorough in your writing while maximizing your creativity!

The cost to attend a The Write Stuff Genealogy Intensive™ over a six week period is $129 per person. A special discounted price of $99 will be available during the early registration period.

Click here for more details and to register. But don’t delay…there are only a limited number of seats available, and you will want to be sure to get the early bird discount. 

I hope you will join me so I can help you to stop worrying and start writing!

Overwhelmed by Family Documents and Treasures? Join Me for the Genealogy Clutter Buster Mini Boot Camp – Saturday, January 16, 2016

Is your genealogy life spinning out of control? Is your "inner packrat" taking over your life or precious family history research or writing time? If so, trust me, you are not alone.


I've spent the past year sorting through personal papers, family photographs, books and other items that haven't seen the light of day in over 10 years. When you work in a field that is all about preserving the past, the lines often blur between being a genealogist and becoming a packrat. If you feel this way, then the Genealogy Clutter Buster Mini-Boot Camp could be the boost you need to be a better organized and more effective researcher. I have partnered with Thomas MacEntee of HackGenealogy and will be sharing my experiences and some of my favorite organizational tips and resources.

Finding Ancestors in FindMyPast - Save 75% Off World Subscription - Offer Expires 30 November 2015

Hurry! Save 75% off  World Subscription for FindMyPast 

While shoppers were out embracing Black Friday madness, I was at home enjoying my coffee and logging some serious genealogy research time thanks to FindMyPast.



No big deal, right? Well, this wasn't just any genealogy research day for me, it was a chance to take advantage of my FindMyPast account to explore many of their great collections and make some unexpected discoveries. I never would have expected to find my Slovak ancestors in a database that I mostly associate with records from England, Ireland, etc. To my surprise and delight I located some records for ancestors from my paternal grandmother's side of the family in two databases. 

The first was the Passenger Lists Leaving UK 1890-1960.This database shows has names of people who left Ireland and Great Britain between 1890 and 1960 and offers details such as where they were going and where they were coming from, where they called home as well as their age, occupation and whether they were married or single.

(I found Mike Finchack and his wife sailing to the United States on the City of Chester in 1891. From other research I learned he was a "bird of passage"--someone who came to the U.S. to work and earn money so that he could eventually return home with a goal of using the money to buy land).

I also went back to the British Newspapers database to review a coroner's inquest notice in the May 10, 1884 - Liverpool Mercury newspaper - Liverpool, Merseyside, England I had found some time ago. The brief article summarized the tragic death of an infant Michal Fenchak who died after accidentally falling in a pan of hot water.

I just love finding more pieces for my family history puzzles, don't you?

Lesson learned here; You never know which databases your ancestors will show up in. If you haven't explored FindMyPast, now is the perfect time to do so. This weekend the World Subscription is only $49.87 for 1 year when you use promo code THNKSGNG15 or THANKSNOV15.  (This offer is for subscribers from US only). Once you following the link to the site, click the "Subscribe" button and then select the World 12 month membership and enter either of the codes above is the discount code box to the right and click apply), then follow the instructions to finish the sign up process).

But, hurry, the offer ends on 30 November 2015

Ten Things I Miss About Dad: Remembering John Alzo 1925-2005

Ten years ago today I said my final goodbye to my father, John Alzo. I still remember holding his hand as he took his last breath in the room at the Hospice, and even after all this time, the tears are streaming down my face as I write this post. How can it possibly be 10 years?  


One of my favorite photos of my father, John Alzo, taken in the 1940s

But Dad would not want me to be sad. I can hear him now, "Don't cry, Pumpkin." (He used to call me this when I was a little girl).  Instead, I will think about all of the good memories of my father and share the ten things I miss most about him.

1. His smile. My father always had a smile on his face. He was just a naturally happy person. His smile was big and beautiful. It makes me happy whenever I look at photos of Dad smiling such as the photo above which is one of my favorites.

2. Generosity. My father was generous with his time, his talents, and his money. It may sound cliche, but truly he was the type of person who would literally give you the shirt off his back and never expect a thing in return.  He was a caring husband, father, brother, friend, and neighbor. One of my cousins once told me "If everyone had someone like your dad in their lives the world would truly be a better place."

3. Seeing him sitting in his recliner. Dad loved his recliner. He would read the paper or watch sports on TV in his recliner. Without fail he would also spend many hours sleeping in that chair.  I still look over at the chair he used in my home and imagine him sitting there with the afghan covering his legs, eating peppermint patties.

4. Those eyes. Beautiful and blue. In them you saw a humble and caring soul.

5. Laughter. Dad loved to laugh and joke around, especially with his long-time friends, Whitey and Andy.  Dad even managed to joke and laugh nearly up until the minute he lost consciousness right before he died.  

6. His favorite sayings. There were so many. Some I can share here, others I won't.  One that always made me laugh was "He couldn't buy a crippled crab a crutch," an old saying meaning you couldn't afford to buy something). I honestly still don't really get that one, but dad liked to say it. I will also never forget him saying "Time to go to the "emergency list"(meaning a grilled cheese sandwich). He would say this during lunch or dinner when he stayed at an assisted living place for awhile after a long illness and didn't like any choices on the menu.

7. A calming presence. My mother was a firestorm and Dad was the calm. (I wish I could be more like Dad, but I take after my mother--it is down to those Rusyn genes I'm sure).  Dad could handle any situation with quiet, strong resolve, even when life threw some pretty big obstacles at him like a stroke and Cancer. I could count on my one hand the number of times I saw my father truly get angry with anyone. It was not in his nature. And he forgave...a lot.

8. His hats. My dad loved hats. Mostly baseball style caps to keep his head covered and protected at work since he had a crewcut. Dad had a large collection of caps--football and baseball teams, and assorted other novelty-type hats.  He also had some popular fashion styled hats in the 40s and 50s (like in the picture below).


John Alzo, c. 1943
9. Love of sports. Dad was a basketball star in high school and then went on to play for many intramural and semi-professional teams in Western Pennsylvania--he played the game until he was in his early 50s. I am sure if he would have had a chance to play in big professional leagues he would have given anything to do so. His motto: "Shoot Your Best Shot,"--on the court and in life.  Dad also liked to watch football (the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pitt). Dad took me to some great high school all-star high school basketball games when I was a teenager. Basketball was his life for a very long time.

10. His ability to fix things. Dad was a carpenter by trade and he could build beautiful things out of wood (decks, cabinets, you name it), repair roofs, and fix things. He had such skill and patience and took great pride in each nail he hammered. And, he could spot shoddy work in an instant. His work was appreciated by family, friends, and his community.  Oh how I wish Dad were here to work on things around my house. More than the carpentry, Dad could fix things figuratively too.  He wasn't the overly affectionate type, but whenever I needed comforting after a disappointment or heartbreak, Dad was there. He would just envelope me in his big strong arms and tell me it was all going to be okay. And, he was always right.

If I had just one more day with my Dad I would tell him all of this and more. He was truly one of a kind.

Three Things I Learned from the Affiliate Marketing Boot Camp - Here's Your Chance to Learn Too!

Did you miss the Hack Genealogy Affiliate Marketing Boot Camp on 21 November 2015? I had the privilege of being the moderator for two information-packed sessions  The Basics of Affiliate Marketing and Creative Affiliate Marketing Campaigns and Methods presented by my friend and colleague, Thomas MacEntee.  





We had a full house and there were so many excellent questions by the attendees. Thomas broke down this often difficult-to-grasp concept into an easy-to-follow format, defined the confusing terminology, and provided comprehensive syllabus materials for both sessions. You can now get all of this information in the Affiliate Marketing Boot Camp – To Go! package for a special price of $26.95. Click here to purchase now.

I personally took three full pages of notes during the sessions.  Here are my top three takeaways:

1. There is no "easy" button. There is a bit of a learning curve before you can be successful at this stuff. Different platforms, different accounts, different terms of service, etc. Thomas provided a thorough overview, and even though I have already dipped my toes in the pool, I now I need to do some homework myself to see how I can effectively work affiliate marketing into my business plan.

2. Plan. Plan. Plan. It is not too early to start planning out my campaigns for 2016. Thomas offered some fabulous suggestions and resources and I can't wait to try them. While everyone else is shopping on Black Friday, I will be home planning my 2016 affiliate marketing strategy!

3. I CAN DO THIS!  Yes there is a learning curve, and I know I have to prepare the groundwork for my success. But..I know I can do this thanks to all of the great tips I learned in this boot camp. 

Below is the official announcement on how you can purchase the "to go" version of Affiliate Marketing Boot Camp.
