 Diary of a Mad Genealogist: A Series of Investigations
Ancestors were REAL People: Bring ‘em Back Alive!
Via GoToWebinar

Family stories are varied and sometimes muddled. Where to start? What to say? How much do I say? Can it just be a short remembrance and not a novel? Well, first, genealogies are not novels as those are fiction. There may however be some fiction if your relative told some tales that are simply not true. And you may decide to include that simply for the family fable (like grandma Cora talking about cousin Ned, the full blooded Indian who had 20 children- and how that was proven untrue, but still a good story). If you heard my previous presentation on stories, this one is different. It is not a formula for storytelling but it is about exporing how many ways can you share something about your ancestors and resources to breathe life into our ancestors.
