About this project

My name is Reyna.I am a wife and mother of 4 awesome kids, 2 boys and 2 girls.The oldest is 15 and the youngest is 7.Yes they keep me busy and drive me nuts.There is home work, house work, dance classes, school functions and many, many doctors’ appointments.(dr, dentist, eye doctor, therapist) My boys have Asperger’s.But I would not trade a single minute for anything else.They are my world and my passion.And because of them it sparked my passion for genealogy.

I fell in love with family history in 1999 when I found out I was pregnant with my first son.I wanted to be able to share with him where his parents came from and all that they have done.I only knew and spent time with my paternal grandparents.Whom I loved dearly, but I have always wanted to know more.No one ever talked about family.So I started working on them and I have learned so much.I still love and work daily on my genealogy and have helped many others with theirs.I want to share my love with others and help them find the spark and passion.I think when you work and search your own family history it fills you with so much emotion.It helps you find you.I want to make it easy for the beginner and fun as well.So creating this journal book is my big idea.

365 Days of Genealogy helps you find your roots.It gives you little tasks each day to help you trace your history.And whether you fall in love with genealogy or not , you will at least have a family tree to share with your family.You can even pass it down from generation to generation.

I plan to make this a Three ring binder book.This way the user can add documents and pages where needed.There will be envelops for items that cannot be hole punched.I started writing a few months ago and work daily.

I am super excited about this project.I will make it happen one way or another!!!

Risks and challenges

* Challenge – Not completing the book in a timely manner
 -> Pushing myself harder and harder every day. Keeping a blog/journal that I share with my fans and backs so that they can keep tabs on my process.
* Challenge – Creating 365 days of material
 -> Doing extra research and finding material needed to get through another day. Sharing my struggles
* Risk – Possible no one interested.
 -> I plan to share my story with previous genealogy clients, friends, family and anyone who will listen. Post it to social media sites and share with everyone.
* Potential set back – not being prepared for demand.
 -> For delays in receiving my book I will offer genealogy research assistance. A discount on future products. Add ons to the book.

This is a book that I want to write more than anything. It is something I have already started. Being a mom of four kids, thing come up unexpectedly. That is just life for anyone. We only have one car and anything that pops up will always make a challenge. But we always work through the challenge one way or another. I want my children to grow up strong and creative thinkers so it is important to us to always try to find a solution to a challenge. My family is behind me and supports my efforts. How can I beat that.
