Hard to believe after all these years, but I have Elsie’s Story in hand, the result of decades of research in material form. Part memoir and part detective tale, the book relates a lengthy search for answers to the mysterious death of my Aunt Elsie [Green] Woodson in 1960.
What happened to Aunt Elsie? Was her death an accident, suicide, or murder? And what had happened to Uncle Roy’s first wife?
Haunted by Elsie’s death in a northern Wisconsin tavern, I embarked on what would turn out to be a decades-long search using journalistic inquiry, family history research, and even hypnosis . The quest led to secrets, surprises, and, finally, a solution.
The book is available at http://henschelhausbooks.com/. It can also be ordered from bookstores and there’s a Kindle edition on Amazon. It appears thanks to enormous help and encouragement received from many folks over the years.

I just finished Elsie’s Story. I really enjoyed the book; it was a great mix of mystery and genealogy. I had the pleasure of meeting Doris and listening to her story of how this book came to be. Doris has renewed my interest in documenting my own family tree.
