Kinnick Book reaches 30 sales mark

The Kinnick Early US Family History book has now reached the 30 units of printing and sales. Perhaps not a lot, but it has not even gotten onto Amazon yet, and little marketing has been done.

The Schwyhart Early Family History book is now available, but I have not promoted it. It does include another generation of the Walter and Susan (Schwyhart) Kinnick family in it with more Fletchers, etc.

Happy reading! ;-)

Kansas Flint Hills Memories: A Five Year Memoir

Above is the working title of a book I would like to finish before I retire, and move away from the Kansas Flint Hills... though only 300 miles. It would look back at the progress we have made since July 2004 in promoting the Kansas Flint Hills as an international tourism destination.

I have taken photos of the Flint Hills, from border to border, nearly every month over the last five years and have met some wonderful people. I did thirteen oral history interviews with Flint Hills ranchers. We were along for the ride as the Flint Hills Tourism Coalition moved from a loose group of representatives of a number of counties to a 22-county non-profit with a full time executive director - quite a journey; with much more to come!

Does this interest you? I'd love to hear from you!

Happy reading! ;-)

Schwyhart book now is available

Visit Dr. Bill's Book Bazaar to see the current description of the new Schwyhart - Kinnick Family History book. It tells the story of the Schwyhart surname, and it's origins. It suggests that all persons with the "Schwyhart" surname are related, and descend from the the same to families, where two brothers married two sisters... all their children adopted this surname - different from that of their parents.

Check it out. Comments welcomed.

Happy reading! ;-)
