Family History Writing SIG
Monday, October 4
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 October 4th  from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm to review chapter two of Claire Bettag's book the Mire Family: France to Acadia to Louisiana
 
After years of research without finding records for the Mire family in France, Claire began writing Mire Family: Acadia to Louisiana. Originally her first chapter suggested that, despite extensive research, Pierre Lemire would probably never be found in France. Now after finding records for the Lemière family in France she has been revising her book the Mire Family: France to Acadia to Louisiana.
 
In May of 2021 we had the pleasure of reviewing chapter 1 about Nicolas Lemière, her earliest known ancestor in France. At this meeting we will review chapter 2 about Pierre Lemire and look at the historical annimation of eighteenth century Paris where the  Lemière family lived.
 
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 in 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.
