Genealogy, SCGS Featured in Alaska Air Magazine

The December issue of the Paradigm, the Alaska Air magazine, features an article highlighting the growth of travel for family history.

The article can be found online at Time Travel - Genealogy enthusiasts trace their roots to distant places, expanding their sense of family. For those who read the hard-copy magazine, it starts on page 38.

The article mentions a number of genealogical organizations and events, including Southern California Genealogical Society and the Southern California Genealogy Jamboree; The National Archives' annual Genealogy Fair - Washington, DC; Tuolumne County Genealogical Society - Sonora, CA; Family History Library in Salt Lake City, UT, and others. Our good friend Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak was also featured in the article.

The author, Leslie Forsberg, tells of her own family history trip and the emotions accompanying the miles. It's a story shared by so many of us who are searching for roots.  Tip o' the hat to Leslie, to SCGS president Alice Fairhurst, and everyone else who contributed to the article.
