Family History Writers' Group  (Family History Writers' Group)
9:30 am to 11:30 am
Topeka Genealogical Society Library
Many genealogists spend a lifetime researching and gathering up the family history facts, but never get around to transforming those findings into a finished product that can be enjoyed by non-genealogist family members or published for sharing more broadly.  While compiling and publishing a family history book can seem like a daunting task, it is the best way to insure that our research findings are preserved.  The process can be made less intimidating and more fun by sharing the experience with others who are facing similar challenges.
 
This is an informal learning and support group where participants will share their ideas, progress, challenges and successes and learn from one another. 
 
Open to current TGS members; there is no charge for participation.
