Lisa / Smallest Leaf
Nationally award-winning poet and genealogy blogger honored twice by Family Tree Magazine. My name is Lisa but I use the pen name Smallest Leaf as I share the stories of the many colorful characters within my family tree. I am the author of several blogs: 100 Years in America (about my Hungarian and Croatian roots), Small-leaved Shamrock, A Light That Shines Again, and Carnival of Irish Heritage and Culture (which each focus on Irish heritage). I am also a contributing author to The Catholic Gene. I have recently completed two QuickGuidesTM published by Legacy Family Tree: one on Croatian genealogy and one on research using Catholic records. I hope to help bring others, particularly young people, to an understanding of their own place in history and inspire them to carry on the beloved traditions of the cultures in which their ancestry is rooted.
