Blog type: Individual family history

Chips and Chunks is my place to share stories — those I’ve learned from my family and those I’ve learned from my research. It is a way to reminisce with my family and share photos. I hope it can be a way to connect to relatives I don’t yet know!

Experiments in Writing Family History or Why Would Anyone Want to Read About My Family

Blog type: Writing Your Family History

Who am I? I have always been a history nerd, so when my mother wanted to explore our family history, I was hooked. Trolling cemeteries for dates, names, and clues and prowling courthouses for birth, marriage, and death records became an adventure.

When we started this journey we hit many roadblocks, which was before the World Wide Web, Ancestry.com, etc. Several years ago the wife of a second cousin took up the pursuit of finding our family roots. I was once again hooked on finding the relatives that made me the person that I am.

Step one is to compile the facts and figures. That part is easy. Step two is how do I bring their story to life and how do I make it interesting?
