Your Family Stories: What DID They Say?

Each summer the society presents a Speaker Series, a one-day seminar focused on a specific topic. This single concentration provides a wonderful opportunity to hear a series of related presentations in detail, while also being able to share information with others interested in the same topic.

This year’s Summer Speaker Series will be held on Saturday, 13 July 2019, from 8:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.

Our featured speaker will be noted author, instructor, and lecturer, John Phillip Colletta, Ph.D., who will give four talks designed to help you learn more about writing your family stories:

        • Breaking through Brick Walls: Use Your HEAD!
        • Turning Biographical Facts into Real Life Events: How to Build Historical Context
        • Principles of Good Writing and Good Storytelling
        • Writing a Narrative Family History: The Snares and Pitfalls

Watch this page for more information and registration material coming soon!
