Selena Post, an SFA Member in good standing has written a new book entitled Beyond DNA: Inheriting Spiritual Strength from the Women in Your Family Tree. The book includes inspirational stories about many of the women in Selena’s family tree, including Annie Skillman, daughter of F. Robert J. Skillman (1813-1890) of Baltimore. For more details, go to www.amazon.com where you’ll see the cover, a description, some reviews, and you can use the “search inside” tool to read parts of the book.
The Skillman Family Association heartily endorses RootsMagic as our preferred genealogy software. This is a very sophisticated (but not complicated) application, and RootsMagic provides great personal tech support with a live human being on the other end of the line!
