How to Write a Personal History, Mary Maki.
As genealogists we know lists of BMD (birith/marriage/death) dates are not enough. It’s important to bring our ancestors to life, and we do that by telling their stories. Writing about those family stories, verified through careful research and populated with photos, documents, and family recipes is a great way to share your research with the next generation. An added bonus: writing helps to find any holes in your research. This presentation will help you get started on writing that family history that everyone will enjoy.
