Jane reported on a workshop she had attended on writing family stories which recommended finding our own voice and looking for themes which seem to recur during our research as a way of organizing our writing. We looked at the thematic approach used by Penny Bristol Jones on her website www.digbystories.com and Bev's family history blog website https://leedevittfh.weebly.com.
Time was also spent reporting back on progress during the month and working quietly on tasks which having a dedicated time in the month makes possible for busy members. Scotland's People once again proved useful in solving family mysteries during the session. If you have Scottish ancestry, their records are a wonderful resource.
