FAMILY HISTORY WRITING Guidelines and Challenges

This is simply a page with links to my Blog Posts about Writing Family History. I am neither a professional writer or genealogist (I do it for love, not money, nothing wrong with combining the two), but I do like to share ideas that work for me. I believe in simple achievable goals. I believe that everyone can write and that people can learn to express themselves with a little bit of practice.
