Writing a Non-boring Family History

Author(s): Hazel Edwards


Family history sleuthing is the biggest hobby worldwide. Amid a sea of genealogy books, Hazel Edwards has written a practical handbook on how to craft stories about our ancestors in an interesting way that other people will want to read. She addresses the vital issues of: injecting life into a name on a shipping list; presenting the familyOCOs murky secrets; doing justice to intriguing ancestors; getting the amount of dramatisation right; interviewing elderly relatives and people close to the family; how to use anecdotes and record memories. This revised edition acknowledges the new e-formats that todayOCOs family members use, includes helpful tips on how to write a eulogy, and covers the growing interest in touring military battlefields and researching onsite material."
