Are You My Cousin?: NGS - Day Four

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

NGS - Day Four

The final day.

I started the day with an early session on using creative non-fiction to enhance genealogic writing.  I picked up techniques and tips to make my genealogy write-ups more interesting to the reader.  In other words, I picked up tips on writing so my family actually reads about our ancestors.

Another session on evaluating genealogy sources and their value rounded out my morning.  I took time for some research and then prepared to head home.  I confess sleeping in my own bed sounded very good.  Fortunately no fire works (after the Reds' baseball game) to wake me up.
