"If You're Ever In A Jam, Here I Am . . "

Let me tell you about how great the geneablogger community is.  Anytime one of us puts out an S.O.S., another answers the call.

The caller this time was me.  Since 2007, I have been the editor for the San Joaquin Genealogical Society's newsletter.  It's nothing fancy, but it is alot of work.  I had been doing the entire thing myself - all the writing, all the copying, all the emailing and all the mailing.  With everything else I have going on, it became too much.  So in the last issue I wrote a couple of paragraphs basically saying that unless I got some help, that would be the last newsletter.

Out of all our members, one and only one stepped up to the plate -  fellow geneablogger Leah Allen.  Leah is a college student from Davis, California and the youngest member of our society.  She is the author of The Internet Genealogist and the Sacramento Valley Graveyard Rabbit.  Leah is a talented writer and has already breathed some fresh air into our publication.

Leah and I are now co-editors and if you would like to see the fruit of our labor,  head on over to the San Joaquin Genealogical Society website and click on the March 2011 link.

Thank you Leah for your gift of time and talent!
