Thursday, May 6
Genealogy Writers Group  (Special Interest Groups (SIG))
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Online via Zoom
Our Purpose:
Our writing group has two purposes. One is to encourage its participants to be actively engaged in writing something relating to their family history. It could be a personal memory, a life story or biographical sketch, or a story about an ancestor.  The other purpose is to provide a comfortable environment that is friendly and nurturing yet challenging. Participants can learn ways to bring genealogy to life and to make their writing engaging and interesting to others.
