A Simple Recipe for Writing Your Family History @ Highland Park Baptist Church
Mar 26 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
A Simple Recipe for Writing Your Family History @ Highland Park Baptist Church | Austin | Texas | United States

You know that just listing names, places and dates on ancestral charts is not the most exciting way to bring your ancestors to life. To do that you need to tell an an engaging story. Yes, you need to create a family history.

Our March speaker, Devon Lee, will discuss simple, practical ways to turn a collection of impersonal facts into a captivating story that you can share with your relatives and future generations. Your ancestors may be gone but they will not be forgotten. So it’s time to get your priorities straight. It’s time to stop researching and start writing your family history. Fear not, there is a recipe to guide you in writing that family history. And our speaker, Devon, will show you how.
