**As some of my readers know, I have a few blogs. My blog Food.Family.Ephemera is where I write about food and family history. The following post is from Food.Family.Ephemera. I'm posting it here as well so that all of my readers can benefit from Denise's Blog Book Tour. Please visit on Thursday, January 22 when Denise's book tour makes a stop at Food.Family.Ephemera.**
I love BOOKS! And I am so grateful to be able to showcase authors who have written great books that help preserve our family and food history. So I'm proud to announce that I am one of the bloggers hosting Denise Levenick's , a.k.a. The Family Curator, Book Tour for her new book, How to Archive Family Keepsakes.
A family's food history can include a variety of heirlooms, kitchen tools, cookbooks, recipe cards, ephemera, table cloths, sliver, and china . Have heirlooms? The Family Curator can help you preserve, archive and hand down those items.
I love that all proceeds from sales from the book during this tour benefit the grant program Denise set up; the 2013 Student Genealogy Grant founded in 2010 in honor of Denise’s mother, Suzanne Winsor Freeman.
Please read below for more information and for the book tour schedule. Check back here on Thursday, January 22nd for Denise's Book Tour stop on Food.Family.Ephmera.
