First off, we have an article from Elizabeth O'Neal of Little Bytes of Life. In John Andrew Pado: Loving Life and Family, she writes about her husband's ancestor, who came from what used to be Czechoslovakia, and memories of him from her husband's family.
Next, we have four articles from Steve Danko of Steve's Genealogy Blog. In The Declaration of Intent of Damian Niedzialkowski -1, he writes about a possible relation to his Niedzialkowski ancestors, and the vital records information he obtained about him and his family from the Declaration of Intent. In The Certificate of Arrival for Damian Niedzialkowski -1935 , he writes about the information he obtained from Damian's certificate of arrival. In The Petition for Naturalization of Damian Niedzialkowski -1938, he writes about the information he learned from Damian's petition for naturalization. In New Discoveries About Damian Niedzialkowski/Damian Cosky, he writes about the discovery that Damian's name change, and about further plans for research.
Last, but not least, we have an article from Jessica Oswalt of Jessica's Genejournal. In A German From Russia: Anton's Story, she writes about her ancestor who came from Russia, and about family memories that family members have of him.

Please let me know if you need more time. I will still accept submissions as long as they submitted to before Father's Day.
The book that I have just finished is Lincoln At Home: Two Glimpses of Abraham Lincoln's Domestic Life by David Herbert Donald (Washington, D.C.: White House Historical Association and Thornwillow Press, 1999). The book is short, coming only to about 96 pages long, and the book is focused on Lincoln's private life. One part of the book is divided into his and his family's life in the White House, and the other half of the book has transcriptions of letters between Lincoln, his wife, and their son, Robert. The book is very easy to read, and includes end notes at the end of the book that explains the context of the letters. Since I did not find any objectionable material in the book, I think it would be a good book for children to read and to use for reports.
