LIVERPOOL, N.Y. (PRWEB) June 14, 2016
In his book titled “In Their Footsteps: A 500 Year Genealogical Odyssey” (published by Xlibris), family historian and genealogist Arnold E. Palmer traces two of his paternal lines to the earliest beginnings of the history of the United States of America. The product of more than 40 years of in-depth research, this work offers important historical insights as well as true human interest stories. A new marketing campaign is all set to promote this book.
“In Their Footsteps” is a genealogical compilation of approximately 900 individuals and the story of how this Palmer Family came to be and where it came from. As one might expect, the geography of a complicated genealogy such as this one has several disparate locations of importance. Thankfully, these ancestors chose to cluster around a select few well documented locales: New England, lower New York State, Northeastern New Jersey, Central New York State and the upper Saint John River valley in New Brunswick, Canada.
This book also tells the story of how and why Samuel Benson Leydecker chose exile in the wilderness of New Brunswick over the prospects of staying in the Hackensack River valley of New Jersey after the American Revolution. “In Their Footsteps” will be of interest to genealogical researchers, historians and general readers who enjoy a non-fiction account filled with mystery, intrigue and real-life adventure.
