Welcome Aboard…


Thanks for stopping by my humble blog!  I’m no big publisher or Internet guru…just a simple guy who likes to write about history, genealogy and lots of other things.

As to this site, it’s about all types of American history, but I tend to concentrate more on the modern era than anything else.  I’ve been on the web for a while now, since around 2008 and this blog has survived different hosts, themes and a whole lot more!  I don’t post as much as I used to, but will try to update it from time to time as I find neat things here and there.

I would encourage you to poke around, hit the menu at top and the archives on the right.  There’s quite a bit of good information and stories, so jump right in and have some fun!  More than likely there’s some broken links, etc., but as time permits, I’m trying to update things as much as possible.

If you’ve heard about me from Library Knowledge, my published work for Internet Genealogy, or my book from ABC-CLIO, then you’re probably wondering why this blog and not more “library and genealogy stuff?”  There’s a few reasons, but mostly it boils down to time!  More than likely, just like yourself, there’s family, friends, and work and I find it is rather elusive to keep up with everything!

Given that, rather than maintain a separate site for that stuff, I just route everything here.  With that said, I do freelance writing, genealogy speaking, and other stuff involving history and libraries.  You can check this page for some writing samples and more.  If you are looking for someone to speak at your genealogy conference, look me up, I’d be glad to help!

I guess I’ve rattled on enough, so have fun, look around the site and if you need to contact me, feel free to.  I’ll try to respond as soon as possible!  You can use questions (at) writingwithtony.com for the email address.

Thanks again for stopping by!
