About Devon Noel Lee

Growing up, the walls of my family home were filled with sepia toned photos of my ancestors. My mother lovingly told me the stories of each relative who watched me grow into adulthood. Besides her few stories, I did not really know these ancestors that were all deceased long before I arrived on the stage of life.

The walls of my home are not adorn with these relatives for my children to see. Their stories are quickly lessening in importance than the characters of Star Wars or the S.H.E.I.L.D. alliance. After 20 years of research, it is time for that to change. With no more children in diapers, I can patiently capture and preserve the stories of my ancestors so they may occasionally ask to hear the stories of my hot bread delivery truck Grandpa or the great-great grandfather who was blinded in the Civil War.

  1. Devon, I've highlighted this blog in my Follow Friday post today, and will also be mentioning it in a presentation tomorrow to the International Society for Educational Biography: http://abt-unk.blogspot.com/2013/04/follow-friday-favorite-finds-this-week.html. Keep up the good work!

    1. Wow. Thank you so very much. I appreciate your support of my work.

  2. Hi Devon, just discovered your sight yesterday. Your intro sounds like me--genealogy, digital scrapbooking, and my family--I'd probably add photography which I think goes with the other three! I've been wanting to do some books on my family combining my genealogy research and you helped me gain some perspective! Thanks!

    1. Ellen,

      Glad you found me. I hope my blog and books can be of assistance to you. Thanks for stopping by.

      Devon Lee
