October's Meeting

Join us for our October Meeting



October 15, 2013
7:00 PM "Writing Your Ancestor’s Life Story” Robert Givens
"They say that when a person dies a library burns. Family History work should be more than the dates and places of a person's life. To bring a person to life we need to tell their story. This presentation will give you suggestions on how to take a writing project from the beginning to completion. Can you actually write an ancestor's life story? Of course, you can! Come and learn how."

General meeting at 7:oo p.m. with program to follow.
