Official Book Release: Echoes From The Past - February 5, 2010

There is a certain amount of excitement in the air we approach the official release of our first book as small press publishers.  Only just a few short months ago, Founders House Publishing was a pipe dream.  I will have to think my wife in part for moving us forward and making Founders House a reality.  I wanted to get this post in here before Friday, so I could let everyone know about Echoes From The Past: A Memoir Of Family Heritage.

Here's a description of the book:
"Echoes From The Past is a memoir of family history written by John L. Kilgore Sr. and his wife Mary Jane. It follows his adventures in genealogy and the unexpected pleasures that came with reconnected in with family long separated by both miles and years.

John discovered not only his family roots in Virginia, but learned that he shared common kinship with country music legends the Carter Family. He met June Carter Cash, wife of country star Johnny Cash.

Later, John made another country music connection with Merle Kilgore, singer/songwriter and manager of Hank Williams Jr. Yet, such famous meetings would not have been possible without the relationships he forged with the many cousins living in the mountains of Virginia and Tennessee and around the country.

This story is as much theirs as it is the John's. We hope you will make it your story."
