Most people don’t think that they are an “important” member of the family tree but certainly, as time passes, they are just as important as their ancestors from near and far. It is time to write these stories down before they are gone forever from your family history or, possibly, other historical archives. In this two-part class we will be working to get you going on your important story, develop a focus that works best for you, and gain valuable feedback to help you begin writing your unique (and important) story.
