Exhibitor Profile-Finding the Bad Inn: Discovering My Family’s Hidden Past

You have names and dates, now what?  Imagine while at a quiet family gathering, your aunt happens to mention a fire and a dead body and that your great-grandmother was arrested for murdering your great-grandfather. After you pick your jaw up off the floor, what do you do? Of course, you abandon your successful engineering career and go traipsing across the globe, all the way from Butte to Belfast to Belgium, to find out what happened and write a book about it.

Booth #435

Christy Leskovar’s first book, One Night in a Bad Inn, a book award finalist, tells the true story of what she found. Her second book, Finding the Bad Inn: Discovering My Family’s Hidden Past, tells the story of how she found out who started the fire, how the body ended up on the ranch, why her grandmother was sent to an orphanage when she wasn’t an orphan, what really happened when her grandfather saved that man’s life in the war, and so much more. In addition to being an entertaining adventure, readers have found the practical tips and tools in Finding the Bad Inn to be very helpful in finding their own family stories, the stories behind the names and dates, the stories that make genealogy come alive. "More enthralling than fiction," said one reader.

Excerpts and trailers are at Both books will be available for purchase at the conference, booth 435. The author will be there to sign them.
