Course Description

IN PERSON: If you have spent time researching your family surnames, you can probably write about four generations of one of your family surnames. Using this as a basis, the course will spend four weeks actively learning how to find and create stories of interest. We will approach the task by: 1) learning how to research and prepare; 2) getting your living family involved; 3) looking beyond birth, marriage and death records; and 4) beginning the writing process. Even if this is your first attempt at writing, you will have the tools you need to get started. By the end of course, students will be prepared to move on to other major surnames and to create more generational stories. | Facilitated discussion, Active Skill Learning.
