October is Family History Month, and you’re invited to join a special event this Saturday, September 30 to kick-off your next family history writing and photo project.
Genealogist and family history writing instructor Lisa Alzo and I are teaming up to present a double header on Saturday designed to help you organize and publish your next family history project. And, if you can’t join us Saturday, that’s okay, the recorded videos with live Q&A sessions plus handouts will be available for later viewing.
