Writing your Family History: Researching Sideways, Writing the Backstory - with historian and author Merle Massie


When: 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 21, 2018
Where: Sunrise Branch Library in Regina (3130 Woodhams Drive)
Cost: Free

This workshop will help you gain confidence in both researching and writing your family, community, or business history. Great histories bravely tell stories, including the sad, the happy, the grim and the weird, beyond names and dates and places. Broken into three parts, this workshop will help you frame your history, find stories in hidden places, and gain writing confidence. It will also discuss what to do when the sources have gaps, or conflicting information. Join historian and author Merle Massie as she helps you find your history.

Presented in partnership with the Regina Public Library’s Writes of Spring program. Participation will be limited, so please register in advance.

For more information contact Oin Nicholson, SWG Program Coordinator at 306-791-7746 or swgevents@skwriter.com
