Genealogy Writers Group  (Special Interest Groups (SIG))
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Central Resource Library 9875 W. 87th St. Overland Park, KS
The Writing Group meets in the Picard room of the Central Resource Library.
 
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.  Other possibilities could be an article for submission to a genealogical publication or even a complete family history book.  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.  
 
This is a special interest group of the JCGS and is a free benefit of membership. Members interested in writing about their family history are welcome to participate and will get the most benefit by attending on a regular basis and becoming actively involved.
 
This group meets on the 1st and 3rd Thursday afternoons, 1 p.m. in the Pickard Room at the Central Resource Library located at 9875 W 87th St, Overland Park, Kansas.
