Writing Your Life Story: Tales for the Grandchildren
7 sessions, 14 hours
ILR’s longest running course returns! Weekly handouts and discussion guide you in writing your family history, recording its unique culture, folklore, and values for future generations. By preserving both personal and family stories, you can provide a good sense of self-identification and belonging to those who come after you. Whether you are a beginning or experienced writer, you will benefit from class discussions as you write at least seven stories during the seven sessions of the class. Course is limited to 12 participants, so register early.
Facilitator: Dottie O’Neal was hand-picked by the creator and long-time teacher of this course, Shirley Sandage, as the facilitator of one of ILR’s most popular courses. She was a student of Shirley’s in this course for many years and continues to write her own life story. Dottie also teaches ILR’s genealogy courses.
