NGS’s newly-revised (2010) Creating a Winning Family History by Carmen J. Finley just got a shout out from Michael LeClerc of the New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) in the September 29 edition of The Weekly Genealogist.
We are reminded what a great resource this book is! Whether you’re writing for your family, for posterity, or to enter the NGS Family History Writing Contest, you want your family history to receive the attention and accolades your work deserves. Creating a Winning Family History helps you meet that goal by providing guidance and suggested resources.
- Numbering Your Genealogy: Basic Systems, Complex Families, and International Kin, by Joan F. Curran, Madilyn Coen Crane, and John H. Wray (rev. ed. 2008)
- Evidence: A Special Issue of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly (NGSQ 87, September 1999)
- Putting Family History Into Context: A Special Issue of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly (NGSQ 88, December 2000)
As we all know, it can be challenging to write a comprehensive yet clear and engaging family history. Let these resources help ensure that your family history is everything it can be.
The print version of Creating a Winning Family History can be purchased for $10 (members) and $12 (non-members) plus S&H. There is also a downloadable PDF version for $6 (members) and $8 (non-members).
