Writing a non-boring family history 10 November 

Every family has secrets. And the extraordinary ‘ordinary’ stories 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. But how do you create an account that is memorable, engaging and not boring?


Join author Hazel Edwards in this engaging 3hr writing workshop.
