It may seem odd to have a “welcome” post to a company blog that has been in existence for two years; however, there is a new blogger so we felt a post marking the start of my blogging for Genealogists.com seemed appropriate.
My name is Amanda Epperson and I have been around dead people my whole life: from traipsing through cemeteries in Tennessee with my Mamaw when I was little to completing a PhD in immigration history when I was grown. In the intervening years. I have learned that American genealogy is almost inseparable from American migration history. America has attracted immigrants for centuries and once here they, or their descendants, were often on the move again.
My plan for this blog is three-fold. First, to share my historical expertise and genealogical knowledge to help you in your own research. Second, to share information about history and genealogy that is just fun or interesting. And third, to help you get to know the staff of Genealogists.com and the world of professional genealogy, so you know what to expect when it’s time to call for help in your search for your roots.
I look forward to hearing from you and hope you will take the Genealogists.com blog (and me) along with you on your family history journey.
Note: In addition to regular blogs by Amanda, we will also have guest blogs on occasion. Speaking of which, if anyone would like to submit a blog for publication, please do so to [email protected].
