How Do I Write My Family History?

So you've spent countless hours researching your family history.  You have binders full of notes that contain everything you would ever want to know about your ancestors.  What's the next step?  Surely you'll want to share this research with others, may they be members of your family or fellow genealogists.  If so, why not consider writing a book on your family's history?  

How do I do that, you ask.  Well, we have good news for you!  This Saturday the Godfrey welcomes Liz Petry, acclaimed author, seasoned journalist, and former Godfrey board member to speak on exactly that!  Liz published two book on her own family history, Can Anything Beat White?  A Black Family's Letters and At Home Inside: A Daughter's Tribute to Ann Petry.  She has taught college English and currently leads a weekly writing workshop for veterans.  We can't think of anyone more qualified to lead the Godfrey Genealogy Club in learning about writing their own family history!

Genealogy Club meetings take place the first Saturday of every month at 9:30 am.  Club members are welcome to bring their laptops and stay after the program to research.  There is a $25 annual membership fee.
