Sally Cissna was a great interview and has a unique concept. She took her ancestry information and turned it to fiction. Many people would love to do more with their family history.
As of this writing, Sally has the second of her three books in this series out. The story of John, Ida, and their German immigrant families is told through narration, actual newspaper accounts from The Woodstock Sentinel and The Racine Times Journal, and letters sent over the years. We talk writing, publishing and Wisconsin around 1900.
