A Lifetime Legacy

A Lifetime Legacy State of Mind
Blog type: Family, Photos, Professional, Vendor, Writing

Until recently, personal historian, Deborah Tomasetti Perham, considered the legal community her home. Three decades ago, armed with little more than an IBM Selectric typewriter (without correction tape!) and one seriously strong work ethic, she started out providing ad-hoc back office support to law firms long before the words “virtual” and “assistant” were spoken together as phrase.

Throughout the years, Deborah’s knowledge of the legal profession grew and she amassed a vast network of like-minded, legal support professionals. She was particularly drawn to the profession of court reporting, serving that industry for 30 years as an agency owner in New York City.

In 2012 she expanded into the world of personal history, still recording events, but this time there was a change of venue:  from courtroom to living room.  That’s when “A Lifetime Legacy” was born.

This blog is about what Deborah has learned throughout the past three decades and her experiences with her new friends in the “personal history” community.

(You’ll be happy to know she replaced her typewriter with a tablet and a smart phone.)

Deborah proudly serves as secretary on the board of the Association of Personal Historians

Desde el año 2001, ejerzo profesionalmente en el campo de la investigación, la difusión y la divulgación de la historia y la genealogía. Durante los últimos diez años, he investigado en numerosos archivos, cuyos resultados he comenzado a plasmar en mi obra Hidalguías del Reino de Sevilla, cuyo primer tomo vio la luz en el año 2011. He publicado, además, varios artículos sobre genealogía, entre otros, en los Anales de la Real Academia Matritense de Heráldica y Genealogía, en el Boletín de la Asociación Riojana de Genealogía y Heráldica, de la que soy socio y vocal para Andalucía, o en la revista electrónica Cuadernos de Genealogía, de HISPAGEN.

En la actualidad, compagino la investigación histórica y genealógica con la redacción de los siguientes tomos de la obra Hidalguías del Reino de Sevilla y la producción de contenidos de exposiciones de diversas temáticas.

Perry Family Tree

Perry Family Tree
Blog type: Family

This is a blog on genealogy, in particular on items and resources I have found doing my family research over the past 30 years. Others have contributed significantly and they will be cited.

Key names:


the family room

The Family Room
Blog type: California, Library

Welcome to The Family Room!  My name is Mary and I am the Collection Specialist here in the California History and Family Research Room at the Madera County Library.

Being a native Maderan, I enjoy being able to share my knowledge of Madera and its history with fellow researchers, as well as assisting those patrons who are just beginning their family research adventure.  In full disclosure, I will admit that I am not a writer.  I work in a room full of old books, pictures, maps and various collections about Madera County and am quite happy doing just that.  However, after working here for some time, it has become  clear to me that this room has its own stories to share and for now, I will be the storyteller.

Waggoner’s Trail

I am new to blogging and fairly new to genealogy.  I started genealogy in 2011 and decided that a blog would be a great way to share stories and make connections.

Who We Are and How We Got This Way

Who We Are and How We Got This Way
Blog type: Family, Jewish

In August 2013 I attended the 33rd Annual IAJGS Convention, (International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies) I attended several lectures about writing family histories, bought a book and spoke to many people about the best approach to use. The best advice was given to me was, “It’s better to print some stuff now than nothing EVER” So…prompted by that philosophy (and my brother, Dean) I have decided to publish this blog as a way to share information NOW while working on a multi-volume family history.

WV Roots Branches and Trees

WV Roots, Branches and Trees
Blog type: Family, West Virginia

I love genealogy and discovering my roots. Unfortunately no matter how I try, or how often I talk about it, my family does not seem to share my passion and are more than a little tired of hearing about the contents of 100+ year-old wills and other such treasures. I hope to use this blog as a place to ‘talk’ about family history and, perhaps, relieve my family of my sometimes non-stop chatter! I also hope that having a place to put down my thoughts will help me organize the information that I have gathered over the past 10 years or so. Right now I’m pretty excited about my new ‘project’….hope it lasts….
