How did you get the idea of writing this book?

I first got the idea for the book when I was researching my family tree. I needed a resource to help me in getting information on my Canadian ancestors. 

Where did my ancestors come from? 

I had birth and death dates on a lot of my family but I wanted documented facts for these records about my forefathers. Getting that information was very time consuming. I needed and wanted more information that was free. I am on a pension and money constraints was an issue. I was also curious if there was any step-by-step procedure online in helping me with my research. There were a lot of websites with different steps but nothing was concrete for the research that I wanted to concentrate on. I decided to write my first book called ’22 Steps in Researching Your Family Tree’ to help guide new family historians. After I finished the book, I decided to write another self-help genealogy book for new genealogists in researching their Canadian ancestors, that was when ‘38 Family Tree Research Resources’ was born. As soon as I released the book I had the idea that I could write another ebook for other family historians researching for ancestors around the world and that is when ‘New Leaves’ came to life.
