Before ever taking a genealogy course, I authored and published three editions of my family history (The Source: The Garrett, Neely, and Sullivan Families), in addition to a 2010 Supplement to the Revised (Third) edition. I also served as the editor and principal writer of two Church histories that document the involvement of African American families that organized them: Historical Book of Bethel Hall Missionary Baptist Church, Laurens, South Carolina, 1910-2010; and Macedonia Baptist Church, Bethesda, Maryland, 1920-2011: A History of the Little Church on the Hill. Copies of all six books are in the Library of Congress, among other repositories. In 2013 I was the first place winner in the International Society of Family History Writers and Editors (ISFHWE) Excellence in Writing Competition, in category 5 for Unpublished Material by Published Authors. My winning article was entitled Searching for the Slave Owners of Isaac Garrett: Expanding Research Beyond Online Sources, and was published in the June 2014 issue of Columns, the quarterly publication of the ISFHWE.
