Do you write about your family history? Isn’t it exciting when you discover a great story about one of your descendants? Isn’t it, also, frustrating when you can’t find any information about someone you’d like to know more about? Have you ever thought about what stories you are leaving (or not leaving) to your future relations?
Saturday, August 19th, I’m headed to Tampa to give a talk, Don’t Make Your Descendants Research You.
As genealogists, many of us focus our time and energy researching and writing about our ancestors and neglect to record our own lives. Be inspired and guided in writing your life story in this hands-on workshop that helps you commit to paper the story only you can tell.
The free talk focuses on the importance of writing your own story, so it is open to all, genealogists and non-genealogists alike. This free program goes from 10:30-noon at the John F. Germany Public Library (900 N. Ashley Dr. Tampa, Florida 33602-3704).
Give your descendants a gift. Do the work for them. I hope to see you there!
