Preserving Your Family's Story
with Kathy Mastin
Genealogists know how exciting it is to find new information about their family and ancestors. Those discoveries might be as simple as a thorough obituary or photograph, but occasionally you come across a newspaper article chock full of new information and incredible details. In this class we will focus on writing about your family through a guided step-bystep writing exercise. You are invited to bring your discoveries such as pictures or objects to class to use as writing prompts. Your writing could be based on personal memories, or it could be guided by your genealogical research. Kathy is passionate about family histories and is excited to help you with your family history. Bring a notebook with note paper and 4-5 different colors of pens or colored pencils to write with.
