Description
These days seems as everyone is delving into his or her roots, searching for ancestors and long-lost cousins. But sometimes in the search for birth and death dates, Social Security and Armed Forces records, and tombstone inscriptions, we sometimes lose sight of the story of our families -- our story. CIG to Writing Your Family History is a fun, easy-to-follow guide giving basic instruction to researching your past arid writing it down in a way that present and future generations will enjoy reading over and over. The book gives readers advice on not only finding those long-lost aunts and uncles, but how to ask them just the right questions to get the really good stories out of them. Readers can ask questions like journalists, write like novelists, and research like genealogists. Decide what kind of family history to write -- narrative, memoir, biography? Learn to research like a sleuth, report like a journalist, and think like a historian. Look in all the right places -- from old letters to the Internet to Census records. Sharpen your interviewing techniques. To dramatize or not to dramatize. Avoid the mistakes most beginning writers make. Publish or perish? Books, videos, CDs, and more.
