FREE LESSON: Tracing your Family History
This free lesson is a humorous beginners' guide to genealogical research.
This light-hearted introductory lesson, filled with genealogy humour and cartoons, offers beginners the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of family history research irrespective of their ancestors’ places of origin.
It also offers experienced genealogists an amusing break from the information overload of the average genealogy lesson or conference.
This free lesson is the first lesson in the Words on the Page course.
Is writing an art or a craft? This is one of the big picture questions this lesson poses as we begin our writing journey. We also explore our history-writing personality types, which have an impact on our attitude towards tackling the writing journey.
As we narrow our focus, we examine the different literary forms and genres available and suitable for genealogists. We position these on the history-writing spectrum.
Finally, we talk about the four main literary styles we can use to communicate our family information.
This lesson provides a literary foundation. We begin building on that foundation in the remainder of the Words on the Page course.
This free lesson is the first lesson in the Publish or Perish course.
At some point in our genealogical research journey, many of us realise that we'd like to publish the results of our research in some form or another so family members can access it. But what are our publishing options?
This is an overview lesson, exploring the publishing industry as a whole and looking at some of our writing and publishing options within the industry.
This free lesson is the first lesson in the Words, Words, Words course.
The easiest way to empower our prose and to engage our readers is at the basic sentence level in our prose. The Words, Words, Words course explores the "parts of speech" of the English language. The first lesson is an overview lesson.
