Virtual Live - How to Write Your Family History Books  (Monthly Meetings)
6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Virtual - Via Zoom
Virtual Live Featuring Linda Wortham
Topic Discussion:  How to Write Your Family History Books
As a newlywed my husband and I attended a family reunion.  Much research had been done by this individual and I quickly realized that there were names that I recognized from my own family tree. I had to find the connection.  It was an intriguing study and recording it was done on paper, since the internet and even personal computers were not created. I did find the link between our family and it makes for great stories and fun connections. 
About the Speaker:  Linda's research journey began 48 years ago.  She has written several books and worked hard to publish works as well as the works she has since done for others during the years.

A Foundational Step in Research Strategy – What is the Research Question
Topic Discussion:  Effective research questions should be about a specific person that will help to frame the research scope.
This will lead to relevant information and hopefully will identify evidence that will answer the research question. This session will discuss how to determine and write effective research questions to guide your research strategy and process. Examples from current and past research will be used. How to manage multiple research questions through the use of technology will also be reviewed.
