EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT!
A new blog is born, The Catholic Gene. And I'm proud to be a part of it! This blog is the brain child of Donna Pointkouski who also writes What's Past is Prologue. It's a blog about Catholic Genealogy and it's authored by a host (see, I can be phunny ;-) of well known bloggers who practice the Catholic faith. In addition to Donna and myself, the team consists of Stephen Danko, Sheri Fenley, Lisa (Smallest Leaf), Lisa A. Alzo, Denise Levenick, Craig Manson, and Cecile Marie Agata Wendt Jensen (aka Ceil Jensen). You'll also likely read posts from the footnoteMaven from time to time. No, she's not Catholic in the traditional sense but we're bringing her into the fold anyway. Hey, this is not your grandmother's Catholic blog!
So what is Catholic genealogy anyway? Heck if I know. We're gonna define it as we go. We'll have some blog posts about our own memories of days in Catholic school, introduce you to some saints, chat about a holy day or two, touch on some Catholic rituals, feature some beautiful churches, and look at the lives of some of the faithful who have answered the call to serve their Church... all with a bent towards genealogy. The word "potourri" comes to mind.
And while you're there, be sure to visit the Authors page to see the cutest and loveliest Holy Communion and wedding photos of the blog's authors. Not to be missed!
