George Morgan posted his annual list for summer reading
for Genealogists on Ancestry Daily News this week. The first title on the list is the book I'm presently reading, Isle of Canes
. It is written by one of my favorite genealogical writers, Elizabeth Shown Mills and is based upon her years of research of multiracial families residing in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana. This is the same area that was the setting for Lalita Tademy's Cane River
. I always enjoy Rett MacPherson's novels with fictional genealogist Torie O'Shea. Her newest book In Sheep's Clothing
is also on my summer reading list.
