Family History Writing SIG
Monday, December 5
Family History Writing SIG  (FxGS SIG Events)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
ZOOM Meeting - Limited to SIG membership (its free)
We invite you to join us for the FxGS Family History Writing SIG online Zoom meeting on Monday night December 9th from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm to review Greg Bayen's manuscript The Confusing Will of Ezekiel W. Bass and its Contested Probate. 
 
The intended audience is genealogists with roots in Middle Tennessee, as well as anyone unaware of the value of court records.
 
Ezekiel's will is written with errors. The probate court's tramscription of the will added more errors. The contested probate provides a treasure trove of genealogical information regarding his descendants in five states. 

 

If you have a manuscript you are writing for your family or publication, members of the Family History Writers’ Special Interest Group would enjoy reading and reviewing your family narratives to help you to make them even better.

We are all at different levels of writing skills and experience, and we enjoy helping each other. Whether questions of grammar, comma usage, spelling variations, or those fiendish footnotes, we welcome the opportunity to discuss and debate the issues.

If you wish to be added to the members' list to receive a copy of the draft manuscript by email and join the online meetings, please send your name and email address to SIG co-leader Sean Furniss at Sean.Furniss@gmail.com.

Join us at the online Zoom meeting and see how historical context can be incorporated into family history narratives. See how two stories can be told at once, placing the protagonist in the center of the action, adding suspense, injecting drama, and using dialogue to move the story forward.
