Family Histories

People want to connect with their roots. If you doubt it, consider the explosion of interest in genealogy and the number of people you know who are visiting the countries where their ancestors were born. In a society where grandparents no longer live down the block and extended families are often neighbors instead of relatives, more people than ever want to capture their stories while there are still people around who remember them.

Compiling a family history involves conducting research; organizing myriad details; tracking down and identifying old photos; interviewing people; and, of course, writing it all in an interesting way. This can be daunting for an inexperienced writer.
