Napa Valley Genealogical Society, Finding Family: How to Tell Ancient Stories Your Loved Ones Will Want to Read | Lifestyles
The Napa Valley Genealogical Society presents “How to Write Ancient Stories That Your Loved Ones Will Want to Read,” a Zoom talk by Pam Vestal on October 21.
The monthly meeting starts at 1:00 p.m. and the program at 1:30 p.m.
Part of the fun of genealogy is sharing findings with loved ones. Learn how to bring dry genealogical facts to life, choose a compelling story structure, improve the quality of your writing, and present what you have written in an engaging way. Create a compelling story from the names, dates and places of our ancestors. The facts don’t change, but how we describe them makes all the difference.
Pam Vestal became a genealogist and professional speaker after a 20-year career as a writer. His articles have been published in the Association of Professional Genealogists Quarterly and the Forum magazine of FGS. She lectures from coast to coast, specializing in turning genealogical research into illustrated stories.
