Writing Family History

Written By: carolmoye - Jun• 18•13

I have been angry at myself for the last couple of days for not writing. I’ve been working almost non-stop on a Family Tree/Family History book, writing biographies for our ancestors, telling the story of our generation and the younger generations with photos. It is a rather ambitious undertaking. It took me far too long to realize that I have been writing, even when I am not using words. I am creating a book. It is the same skill set it takes to write the other things I write; the ability to tell stories, to use words to create images, to use images to tell stories, to draw on the reader’s emotions, making them feel proud of their heritage. Creating something that, hopefully, everyone will enjoy reading, and that will bind us together as family.
