Since September 1st, MyCanvas by Alexander’s has been hosting the MyCanvas Guest Blog Series (#MyCanvasGBS) featuring sixteen guest bloggers from all around the globe! Because MyCanvas is unique from other photobook companies in that the product emphasis is on families and family history, the guest bloggers have been focusing on a variety of family history related topics, including personal experiences about the research process, history book creation, the importance of families, and more.The guest bloggers are a mixture of family history enthusiasts, authors, professional genealogists, and hobbyists. They might be a person from your neighborhood. They might be someone you follow online. Or, as is the case with our Feature Guest Blogger, you may have seen her on TV…

Today, MyCanvasGBS is honored to host Mary M. Tedesco! A professional genealogist, speaker, and author. She is a Host/Genealogist on the PBS TV series “Genealogy Roadshow” (seasons 2 and 3) as well as the Founder of ORIGINS ITALY. Mary speaks fluent Italian and travels often to Italy to conduct client genealogical research and visit family. Mary is the co-author of “Tracing Your Italian Ancestors” an 84-page Italian research guide published by Moorshead Magazines. To learn more about Mary, please visit her blog, twitter, and facebook.
