Sign up to receive one chapter a week in this email course: Writing Your Personal Family History Course
- Start with either the first chapter or any of the others that may interest you. Pick a question to answer and begin to write! You can write just a sentence or two, a paragraph, or a whole page if you want. Remember, you don't have to answer every question!
- You can write your personal family history by hand or on a computer, just make sure to back up your work if you do!
- Put each page in a notebook, such as a 3-ring binder. You can even include a copy of the questions you answer to help organize your personal family history.
- Optional items you can include in your binder are:
- Charts (pedigree, graphs, tables, maps)
- Lists of names and birthdays
- Letters to/from family and friends
- Copies of certificates, awards, and achievements
- And anything else you'd like to include in your personal family history!
