The Family History Writing Challenge is an opportunity for all genealogists, to set some valuable time aside for the next 29 days and commit to writing their family history stories. No more excuses. There are so many benefits to writing your family history.
- First for yourself, assembling your years of research into a readable and sharable format is very rewarding.
- Secondly, genealogy has never just been about the research, behind all those facts and documents there hides a story. If you have done your job well, then that story will reveal itself through your research, now it’s time to write and record those stories an engaging format.
- Thirdly, it is the most concise way of educating your family about their history.
Stop procrastinating, the research will never be done, take what you know, today, now, and begin to assemble your stories. Dedicate the month of February to sitting down and putting your fingers to the keyboard and write your family history.
In an effort to give many of you a gentle push, The Armchair Genealogist is declaring February, Family History Writing Month and I am inviting you to join our challenge.
I am calling on all my fellow genealogist, family historians, beginners and advanced alike, to pledge to begin to write your family history during the month of February. Welcome to the The Family History Writing Challenge.
