I love stories. All kinds of stories, but especially the ones I heard from my parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. That’s why I started this website and blog in 2014. Nearly every week I share a family story or something else I think my readers would enjoy.
My goal is to keep my ancestors alive through their stories because I don’t want them to become just names and dates on a piece of paper. I don’t want to be just a name and dates on a piece of paper either, so I’m writing my own life stories, too.
I participated in a Guided AutoBiography (GAB) workshop where I wrote stories about my life and shared them with the class. I enjoyed the workshop so much that I became a certified GAB instructor so I can help others write their stories, too.
GAB workshops are usually held in-person, but my Marking Your Milestones GAB workshops are live and online since not everyone is able to attend in-person meetings. Learn more about my workshops here including dates and cost.
Besides being a blogger, a past GAB workshop participant, and a certified instructor in the Birren Method of Guided AutoBiography; I’m also:
-A Writing Coach for Write-At-Home, an on-line writing program for middle and high school students where I’ve worked for 10+ years. Here’s a link to my coach’s page.
-The author of Easy Family History Journal: The Growing Up Years which is available on Amazon.com.
-A family historian with 30+ years of research experience.
