Ferndale, WA (PRWEB) September 10, 2012
The Heirloom Registry, a new family heirloom preservation service, was recently product reviewed by nationally known house historian and genealogist Marian Pierre-Louis.
The Boston-area genealogist had positive things to say.
"Overall, I found using the Heirloom Registry a very quick and simple process," she wrote in an article on her blog, Marian's Roots & Rambles, from Aug. 22. "I had a good experience with this service and look forward to adding more heirlooms to my account.”
Pierre-Louis is a house historian and genealogical lecturer who specializes in southern New England research. She frequently speaks at conferences, societies and libraries on New England topics ranging from house history research, African American research and a broad range of genealogical topics.
She is the publicity chairperson for the New England Regional Genealogical Conference (NERGC) and is actively involved with the New England chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists. Her Roots & Rambles blog was nominated to the Family Tree Magazine 2011 Top 40 Genealogy Blogs contest. Pierre-Louis also recently launched a new Internet radio show, Fieldstone Common Radio, which focuses on New England genealogy and history.
"We are thrilled that Marian had good things to say about our new service," said Dan Hiestand, Houstory Publishing marketing director. "She is well respected by members of the genealogical community across the country, so her words carry a lot of weight."
