Last year Leslie Albrecht Huber was kind enough to send me a review copy of her book "The Journey Takers". This was the first time I had heard of Leslie and her book. I was fascinated while I read about her experience in researching her immigration ancestors. I found the book different in that it told both Leslie's story and the story of her ancestors as she discovered their lives. There were moments of her envisioning what they must of said and done that swept you away into their tale. Sometimes I wished the book didn't bring me back to the here and now, other times I wished Leslie kept telling more of her research discoveries. It was a meshing of two different books. Then I realized the book was written with the genealogist in mind. Those of us that keep our feet on two sides of the veil. It was an interesting read and I encourage you to pick up a copy of her book to discover what the pages hold within.
Leslie will be in Utah (and Nevada) for a genealogy lecture tour for the next couple of weeks. Most lectures are free and open to the public, except for two conferences. If you have the opportunity of listen to Leslie you won't be disappointed.
