Preserving Family Stories and Memories

Many genealogy researchers are not only gathering names, dates and places of their ancestors but also turning these into written accounts of the life and times of the pioneer families.

There are some writing courses offered online that can be of valuable assistance. From Writers Online Workshops (Publishers of Family Tree Magazine) comes a special offer that expires December 31st. Enter coupon code DE1126FT to receive $25 off one of their classes. Among their offerings are Essentials of Writing Personal Essays, for recording those special treasured memories and capturing all important life events, Fundamentals of Life Stories Writing and Advanced Memoir and Nonfiction Book Writers' Workshop; plus, there are workshops courses "from basic grammar to creativity to scrapbook journaling and everything in between!"
