Writing Your Way to the Past Has a New Home

newblogWriting Your Way to the Past now shares a home with my other two genealogy blogs (GenBlog and Who Will Tell Their Story?) over at Julie’s Genealogy & History Hub.  This change allows my readers the option to continue to follow one, two, or all three of the original blogs, while allowing me to manage just one space.  Think of Julie’s Genealogy & History Hub as three portals, each with a different target, where you get to choose what you want to follow. 

Because I use Feedburner, most subscribers will be automatically switched and no action is required. 

If for some reason you are seeing this post in a reader, you will need to update your reader subscription.  Again, since Writing Your Way to the Past has now been combined with GenBlog and Who Will Tell Their Story?, you have the option to subscribe to one, two, or all three blogs.  For more information on each blog, refer to the home page of the new blog; you can make your subscription selections from there. Note:  If you currently subscribe to either of the other blogs, those subscriptions may already be updated, so no action may be necessary with those blogs.  Basically, if you see a post in your reader similar to this one for either of the other blogs, you will need to update your reader, otherwise, it’s already been transferred.

I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and I do hope that you will continue to follow Writing Your Way to the Past at its new home.

Saving Memories Forever Announces New Partnerships

I received the following email from Saving Memories Forever.  Sounds like great partnerships, especially with Kim Weitkamp.

Saving Memories Forever Announces Strategic Partnerships with APPO and Kim Weitkamp


July 2, 2013 – St. Louis, Missouri. Saving Memories Forever, a dynamic online way to create and preserve family memories, is pleased to announce its new alliances with two new partners: the Association of Personal Photo Organizers (APPO) and Kim Weitkamp. Both APPO and Kim are well known in their respective fields and are committed to providing their customers with new ways of preserving family stories.

Association of Personal Photo Organizers (APPO)

Saving Memories Forever is proud to announce that it has been selected as a partner by the Association of Personal Photo Organizers (APPO). As stated on its Partnership page at its website, APPO “continually researches, identifies and partners with the best in the industry to ensure our customers and members have access to the most updated and highest quality service and tools available today.” We’re pleased to be working with individual APPO consultants in offering their clients a new way to record family stories that help bring photographs and other family mementos to life.  See for more information.

Kim Weitkamp

We are excited to announce a new partnership with Kim Weitkamp, nationally-known storyteller and speaker. Kim has been brought on as the exclusive storyteller for Saving Memories Forever and will be providing articles, blog tips and audio storytelling tips for the Saving Memories Forever application.

Harvey Baker, co-founder of Saving Memories Forever states, “We’re excited to be working with the consultants at APPO as well as fantastic storyteller Kim Weitkamp. Saving Memories Forever recognizes that there is more than one approach to telling a good family story. Some use family photos to inspire while others try to capture the oral history they remember being shared during family reunions and events. With the help of our new partners, Saving Memories Forever will find the inspiration they need to get started in sharing family histories – one story at a time.”
