Finding out who you really are is a basic human need. One great way to do that is to find out and understand better where you came from. Cindy Hale has been researching families, including her own, for more than 35 years, with experience in deciphering and interpreting old records and scripts. Genealogy is like detective work, connecting clues and putting together hypotheses that are then proven or disproven. Amazing discoveries and stories lie within the most ordinary people!

Along Keithley Creek

Crickets chirping…water burbling…sun is shining. Thanks for joining us here on Keithley Creek. It’s always a beautiful day when the light of truth shines. 

Getting started with your own book is about like standing on stage for the first time. Kind of scary, with mixed expectations and a somewhat altered sense of reality. Some things are a lot clearer in hindsight, of course, but real life doesn’t work that way. If you are looking for support as you navigate this path, well, let us know how we can help you. We can edit. Basically we can take your manuscript and suggest organizational, spelling and grammatical changes. You make the final decision. Once that’s made, we can proofread, do layout and generally just put your book together, according to your wishes and our experience. We can help you with marketing, to a degree, although you will need to be active in that process.

On our website, we’ll soon be posting some helpful information published by our printing partner,, cute little cartoony things that outline the process of putting a book together. While they are paid advertisements, they are also clear, concise and confidence-building. We like that.
