In my Monday post I had mentioned that a short piece which I had written about myself and my blog appears in the current issue of Jackson Brigade Quarterly (Vol. 18, No.2 issue dated February 2010). This quarterly magazine is a publication of Jackson Brigade , which is a genealogical association for descendants of John and Elizabeth JACKSON, who were the great-grandparents of Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson.
I am proud to be part of this heritage and this was the primary reason for my article in the Quarterly. Since membership is spread all across the United States and I am a fairly recent member of the organization, not many members knew of me. The article gave me a chance to tell a bit about myself and my blog. I hope to see members of the Jackson Brigade add themselves to my blog followers. And if Stonewall Jackson is a part of your family tree and you haven't joined the Jackson Brigade check out the website and find out how you can join. In the future I hope to include some more stories about this Jackson family and those related to it.
Unfortunately, most readers will not have access to the article that I have written for Jackson Brigade Quarterly since distribution is limited to members of the organization and a handful of libraries and historical organizations. However, on the internet you can read another article that I wrote back in 1990 that is a tribute to my father.
this article which appeared in the magazine Juggler's World , a quarterly publication of The International Jugglers Association. My father had been among the earliest members of this organization and served as president in 1957.
Getting published is almost always a thrill for a writer. After all isn't that why we write? I hope to have many future posts about articles that I get published. Do you have any articles appearing in recent or upcoming publications? What are some of the more obscure publications in which your written work has appeared?
