|Reader Comments for Blackledges in America (2nd Edition)|
I received the books yesterday and a cursory look into them is just
amazing. Having the c.d. didn't really tell the whole story -
much new information we added, and I was only involved with one
section. Great job. The books look great.
Now, I just
have to re-enforce a bookshelf to hold all this weight!
Thanks for your work on this.|

Mike, just received the books. Looking forward to sitting down and enjoying them. Thanks again for all your hard work. Please pass my sincere thanks to the others involved in putting this major undertaking together. You all have done something special and should be very proud of it.
Five years ago I didn't know anything about my roots. My father was the only Blacklidge in that generation that ever married and I was his only son so I didn't even have any first cousins or any other distant relatives that I knew of other than grandparents and an aunt or two. Once I found your web site and got your first edition I was able to realize how far the Blackidge's went back. It was very eye opening and I appreciated understanding some of my genealogy. Knowing that there were Blacklidge's who accounted for many fine things in their lives was good. Thanks again,

Reader Comments for Blackledge Stories
It is the family stories, those fables passed down from the old to the young, that reveal a family’s flavor—sweet or tart, sour or acidic. Michael Allan Blackledge has compiled generations of valorous and amusing family stories in the book Blackledge Stories for us to delight in.
- Louise Farmer Smith, author of The Woman Without A Voice
“Blackledge Stories” goes beyond the genealogical events, recounting adventures of both recently departed and current clan members. Well written and well told, it will hold your interest as they share intimate details in their lives with mirth, pathos, excitement, tragedy and triumph.
- Richard W. Blide, author of Alien Threat and Heartfelt
While this book is
bound to entertain present and future generations of Blackledges, it also
should spur all readers to record the stories that make their family members
unique – not mere names, places and dates in a family tree.
