“This Holiday, Save the Stories” — a Family History Workshop

Posted by eastsidehistorymadison on December 1, 2012

10-11:15, Saturday December 8th, Bolz A, Goodman Community Center

Holiday gatherings bring out family stories. And it’s important to save those stories, because your memories are a gift to the future. Children need the stories that bring to life family history, traits and values. Writing those stories down connects extended families across time and space.

But how to get started? Come to this workshop to learn practical tips to nurture your family ties through stories. Refreshments and instructional materials provided.

Christmas 1959ish

This workshop is presented by Sarah White (in photo at left, ca. 1959), author, writing coach, and East Side History Club organizer.
