“Research and Write Your Family History” Saturday, May 4, 9:00-12:00

This time next Saturday I’ll be co-presenting at the Sequoya Branch Library with Dee Grimsrud, genealogy researcher and Barb Perkins, photo organizer.

“Research and Write Your Family History,” takes place May 4, 9:00-12:00, at the Sequoya Library Branch, 4340 Tokay Blvd, Free!

“The single most important thing you can do for your family may be the simplest of all: develop a strong family narrative,” wrote Bruce Feiler, author of The Secrets of Happy Families: How to Improve Your Morning, Rethink Family Dinner, Fight Smart, Go Out and Play, and Much More in a recent New York Times article.

Come for tips, techniques, and inspiration to get you started writing your family’s history.

This workshop is sponsored by the Westmorland Neighborhood Association as part of an oral history project Tsupported by Dane Arts with additional funds from The Evjue Foundation, Inc., charitable arm of The Capital Times.
