Speaker: Lisa Alzo; www.lisaalzo.com/
As genealogists, we often focus on facts so much that our research produces nothing but lists. But what happened between the dashes of your ancestors’ lives? This presentation will discuss using nonfiction writing techniques to produce a family history that will keep the pages turning for generations.
