Learn how to take a first step toward writing your family history, with a focus on print projects. Presenter Penny Stratton, Publishing Director of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, will discuss tips and tricks for creating a family history to share with relatives or others.

She’ll discuss setting goals for your family history; assessing your materials; selecting a format; defining your scope; pulling your materials together; writing; and then deciding how to print your project—and will show examples of short or informal family histories; transcribed diaries; photo books; charts; and even family-history calendars.
