Do your relatives’ eyes glaze over when looking at a typical published genealogy? Discover how easy and fun it is to write your family’s story in short, manageable snippets that will be difficult to put down.
Sandra Goodwin, our presenter, past president of the Massachusetts Society of Genealogists, has been researching her family’s history since 1992. Besides researching, she has also spoken at local, regional, and national conferences and taught family history writing and genealogy classes. Join us! Meetings are appropriate for all ages and all grade levels.
