Have you been researching your family tree and would like to write it up as a story but don’t know how to start?

In this workshop, Barry will help you get started and show you how you can structure it, so that you can write-up your family history while still continuing your research. Barry will show you the system he developed and also suggest alternative approaches and opportunities.

The workshop will help if you have not started yet and wonder how, or if you have already been writing up your family history and would like additional advice, or would just like to see how others write their story.

Ticket price includes tea/coffee and biscuits. Places are limited so pre-booking is required.

    Barry started researching his family history in 1978, after seeing old photos and hearing family stories from his grandmother. Research was initially slow, but having made some progress he wanted to pass on the information he had found. Providing lists of dates and names was not very interesting and so Barry developed an approach which made his research into an interesting story for the family to easily understand.

    The dilemma was how to start writing while continuing to add information from his research. This workshop is based on Barry’s experiences and alternative approaches and opportunities.
