How to Write a Non-Boring Family History



Hazel Edwards




Recent lockdown de-cluttering has uncovered family stories. The extraordinary “ordinary” stories of quiet heroes deserve to be told. Researching and finding the best way to tell these stories can be a fascinating journey and the chance to create a valuable resource for your descendants. Suitable for those contemplating or struggling with a book length project such as a family history, corporate history, or autobiography/memoir. Also for those creating family history stories for younger children.
