Appearance: So. St. Paul, Minnesota March 21st

I will be presenting a lecture titled “Baker’s Dozen: Easy Ways to Begin Writing Your Family History” on Saturday, March 21st at the Swedish Genealogical Society of Minnesota's Quarterly Meeting. This lecture demonstrates ways to get that writing started without becoming overwhelmed. It includes ideas for sharing family history with family members who otherwise might groan. They might not even realize you are indoctrinating them into the fascinating history of their ancestors. If you use several of the "Easy Ways" over a year or two, your end result will be that much of your family history is in some sort of print that can easily be modified for a larger publication.

The meeting takes place from 1:00 - 4 p.m. at the Minnesota Genealogical Society Auditorium at 1185 Concord Street North, South St. Paul. Click here for a map. The library is open that day from 10:00 - 4:00. Free parking is next to the building.

If you would like to attend the meeting, the Society asks for a donation of a few dollars or so to cover expenses such as room rental, coffee and cookies, speaker fees, etc.
