Turning Dry Facts into Exciting Narrative - free webinar by Carol Baxter now online for limited time

Turning Dry Facts into Exciting Narrative - free webinar by Carol Baxter now online for limited time

The recording of Wednesday's webinar by Carol Baxter, "Turning Dry Facts into Exciting Narrative" is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

The literary world condemns most family histories as ‘fact-driven and tedious’ because they are usually little more than prose timelines. Yet the phrase ‘family history’ communicates the three ingredients needed to produce a piece of prose that is interesting to read: ‘family’ (the facts about the family), ‘history’ (the historical context) and ‘story’. This seminar focuses on the first two ingredients and shows how we can weave our facts together in such a way that the reader is keen to keep on reading.
