New notes from Family Tree site

Category: Genealogy — Posted by Michael at 1336

It’s been forever since I’ve posted an update to the family tree website and I know that there have been many new additions to the Gatti family, especially in Ray and Kathy’s branches of the tree. I’ll get them added eventually. In the meantime, they’ve been kind enough to share all their happy news in the Gatti Family Yahoo! Group.

On the Paull side of the family, there’s also some exciting news. Theresa Tull (my first cousin twice removed, aka. my maternal grandmother’s first cousin) is now a published author. Her book, A Long Way from Runnemede – One Woman’s Foreign Service Journey chronicles her fascinating career as a US Ambassador during several presidential administrations. This space is not nearly long enough to list all of her adventures and accomplishments, but it’s really worth checking the book out on Amazon or learn more from my blog post about it.

My Cousin Theresa’s Book

Category: Interesting Links,Life — Posted by Michael at 1831

A Long Way From RunnemedeAlmost everyone’s career has some interesting moments, but how many people can say that their career has had enough interesting moments to fill a book, nonetheless a book that people would actually want to read?  My cousin (first  cousin, twice removed on my maternal grandmother’s side for you genealogy buffs out there), Theresa, can say exactly that. She spent her career as a member of the US Foreign Service. She was in Saigon, Vietnam during the Tet Offensive and again at fall of Vietnam. She was Consul in Cebu, the Philippines, chargé d’affaires in Laos, Ambassador to Guyana (appointed by Ronald Reagan) and Ambassador to Brunei (appointed by Bill Clinton) among many other fascinating positions and places.

I strongly encourage you to take a look at her newly published book, A Long Way from Runnemede: One Woman’s Foreign Service Journey. I’ve known Theresa forever and have always loved hearing her stories but reading them all in one place made this a book even I couldn’t put down. Besides, the fact that the cover features a picture of her standing in the Oval Office with Ronald Reagan has got to tell you the book is going to be interesting!

Check it out on Amazon.
