The Family History Writing Challenge and Other Great Posts

We have so much help for our writing on the internet these days. The following links are just a sample of some current articles and blogs available to help us write our family history.
  • On the subject of setting goals, Lynn Palermo, The Armchair Genealogist, has invited us to take “The Family History Writing Challenge” in February. She asks:
  1. Have you been writing sporadically never finishing a story?  
  2. Have you procrastinated writing your stories for too long? 
  3. Do you need that nudge to finish your stories and finally publish?
Can you see me raising my hand? I’m taking the challenge and will receive lots of great hints and help from Lynn along the way. 
Check it out here http://www.thearmchairgenealogist.com/2013/01/the-family-history-writing-challenge.html and at her forum http://familyhistorywritingchallenge.lefora.com/, then set your own goal and LET’S WRITE SOME FAMILY HISTORY!


  1. Just found Charles Hale's video done last year on the same subject as his blog this year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBlSskZ1kIc
    Wow, it's excellent!

  2. I recently started my blog to write my family history. I have started with my mother's side. I agree with you that it is so important. I enjoyed your blog, will definitely be back to read more.
