It may be a children’s book but The People Who Made Me also is a genealogy book. It tells a young child about “the people who made me,” focusing on the child’s ancestry. It describes “Those people, who made the people, who made the people, who made me.” It also describes the adventures and sometimes hardships that many of these ancestors endured so the child could be given the gift of life.
Author Troy Hallewell is raising money on Kickstarter to fund the printing and promotion needed for this new book. He writes, “I’ve really been trying to get this project in front of the eyeballs of people interested in genealogy and I’ve had some success so far.” He also stated, “I’ve raised over $600 in pre sales, but I need to raise another $1400 in order to fully fund the project. I know this project might go unfunded and I can live with that. But I don’t want roll over and give up until I have done everything I can to promote the book.”

I contributed to the project this morning and look forward to reading the book to my young grandchildren later this year.
