Writing up your Family History Workshop

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. Or, if you have already been writing up your family history and would like additional advice, or inspiration. 

Pre-booking is required as places are limited. Bookings close one day before the event.

Please note, this workshop takes place in The Centre for Heritage and Family History, 2nd Floor, Reading Central Library. It will also be held in October as a webinar – please see the separate listing, when added, if you would prefer to attend that event.

    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.
