I sometimes tell my top-performing university students that their excellent research reports would make for great advertisements on their web sites once they become professional genealogists. But then it occurred to me: I had never posted sample work products on my own site!
So in order to set a better example for my students, I plan to start rolling out samples of my genealogy work products in the coming months.
This week, I added to my web site a 1700’s Italian letter that I translated and transcribed for a client. I post it here with the client’s permission, and hope it adequately illustrates just how fun Italian genealogy research can be. These old, often deteriorating, documents make for fun reading, don’t they? I couldn’t imagine a career more exciting than genealogy!
