So you want to write the family history

Browsing in the stacks at LAC I see so many uninspired family histories containing masses of good information -- but mostly deadly dull -- only a genealogist could love them.

If you aspire to something more, something the family will want to keep and read, and are within striking distance of Toronto, consider attending the Ontario Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (OCAPG) one day seminar "Writing A Narrative Family History" with guest presenter John Colletta. It's just over two weeks away. Registration is going well but there's still space for a few more folks.

John Colletta, a knowledgeable genealogist and experienced speaker based in Washington, DC., both entertains and educates.

The event takes place at the North York Central Library in Toronto. See http://www.rootsweb.com/~onapg for detailed information about this Saturday 27 September event and follow the instructions to register.

Thanks to Brenda Dougall Merriman for bringing this to my attention.
