Do you want to preserve your family stories for future generations but don't know where to start? Come to the Olde Meck Family Research Center on Thursday afternoons (12:00 noon to 2:00 pm) and join with others who have the same goal. We'll share our stories, provide constructive comments, and generally encourage each other to begin this worthwhile process that we've all been putting off.
 
This group is free for all Olde Meck members AND you can bring a friend. No RSVP is needed. Please come any Thursday you can.
 

What to bring:

  • Memoir writers: pictures of yourself at various ages.
  • Ancestor writers: clippings or timeline or pictures of your taret ancestor.
  • Feel free to bring a brown bag lunch for yourself.
For more details, take a look at Genealogy Family Stories Writing Group.
