Class – Writing Your Family History with Carol Darrow

If you are interested in writing your family history, you must attend this class! Registration is required below to receive the  handout and Zoom information.

Class Description

This three hour class on March 20th at 9 am will explain what to provide in a family history to make it appealing to your relatives or general public.

The first two hours will include pro genealogist Carol Cooke Darrow, who will teach about writing your family history.

We are the chosen.  In each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors,  to put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know, and approve.  “Doing genealogy” is not a cold gathering of facts but instead breathing life into all who have gone before.  We are the storytellers of the tribe.
To do this we need to decide what story we want to tell and who our audience will be. Then we can select a format that will tell that story in a clear and appealing manner that will preserve our research and our family and their story.

The third hour will be shared by several members who have written their family history either in book or vignette form.
