Had a treat tonight. I attended this month’s meeting of the German Special Interest Group of the St. Louis Genealogical Society. Gerald Perschbacher, a founder of the group, introduced me and said some very kind words about me and my book. He was a very big help. I also saw the final, final cover. It looks great.
