Life Story Writing, Enriching Your Family History

Ready to begin writing your family history?  Then join us May 27th from 1pm - 3pm at the California Genealogical Society’s Library in Uptown Oakland.

What’s it about?
Member Craig Siulinski will lead an engaging presentation that describes how writing your autobiography excerpts can enhance and enrich your family’s history. Free to members.  Register here.

What to expect
In addition to participating in a few exercises that jog the mind and memory, attendees will write a short piece on one life story theme. Writing tips will be discussed and every participant will receive an eBook. 

The main goal of this presentation is for participants to appreciate how genealogists writing their own autobiography excerpts can supplement and enrich their family histories.
