Write It Up! A Workshop for Family Historians

Write It Up! A Workshop for Family Historians

We all love to do research.  But how do you get started writing up your family stories and the research? Join fellow genealogists for this intensive writing workshop at the NYG&B, led by Dr. Thomas W. Jones, CG, CGL, FASG, FUGA, FNGS. 

This two-day hands-on workshop gives family historians practice in writing, experience in self-editing, and feedback on their writing samples. Topics focus on gearing up to write, writing processes, and structures and formats specific to genealogical writing. Participants will bring a 500-word genealogical writing sample in an editable format.

There is pre-reading and one overnight homework assignment.

Fee includes seven sessions, morning coffee, soft drinks, end of day social gathering.  There will be a scheduled lunch break (neighborhood lunch options abound). For a complete listing of the sessions, please see our website page by clicking here.
