Researching and Writing about Skeletons in the Family History Closet
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Virtual via Zoom
 
We all have them: ancestor stories that tend to be hushed up: illegitimate children, desertion, abuse, mental illness, etc. How do we discover the facts and what do we do when our family history research uncovers something unexpected? Recording these kinds of details can be difficult. We’ll explore ways to tell our ancestor’s story with integrity and kindness.
