Dear Friends,
I just found out that my Kinnick book was one of three finalists for Book of the Year in a 12 state region. My publisher nominated me and sent a copy of the book to the Midwest Independent Publishing Association last year. He never told me, so this is a true surprise to be a finalist in this region. The category was Recreation, Sports, and Travel. The winner chosen by judges was announced last Saturday and a travel book won the Book of the Year, but I’m still blown away by this unexpected honor and deeply humbled…See below the sticker my publisher sent me that will be on each book…….Again, thanks for all your support……Mark

See information on the book here:

Happy Reading,

Dr. Bill  ;-)

“Kinnick 2003 Genealogy Book Online” now back online

“Kinnick 2003 Genealogy Book Online” now back online

For those of you working on your Kinnick family history research, this post is to remind you that the above resource is now back on line.

For a couple of years, this 900+ page reference posted in 2003 was gone from the Internet while the “freepages dot rootsweb dot com” was being reprogrammed and undated.

This is the front page of our update to the 1953 Kinnick Genealogy Book by Mrs. Waggener, with contributions from something like 100 Kinnick Researchers over the years.

Be aware that, over 15 years, some of the links are now no longer operative. Just back up and try something else. There is a lot there you may not have seen before. There is a lot there that is now available in a lot of other places now. But, here it is all organized based on the family tree, from the beginning in America.

My email is :, not the several emails linked in the 2003 postings that are long extinct.

Happy to answer any questions you have related to this posting or Kinnick research in general.

Bill  ;-)
