A new genealogy column has appeared in the Albuquerque Tribune. Mary Penner writes in her inaugural column:
Are you a genealogy enthusiast with a bumper sticker on your car that reads "Caution: I brake for cemeteries"? Or are you fuzzy on things as basic as your grandparents' first names?
Maybe you're already perched halfway up your family tree, but you can't see through the leaves to get to the highest branches. Whether your family tree knowledge is as green as a sapling or as seasoned as an old cottonwood, this column will help you root out your ancestors.
The column will be published every Thursday in the Albuquerque Tribune. The first column is also available on the Tribune's web site, and I suspect that later columns will also appear there as well. As Mary writes:
Each week I'll write about a major topic related to genealogy. In addition, I'll offer tips to improve your research skills, and I'll review useful Web sites. You'll also find news and events related to genealogy research in and around New Mexico.
