Creating a Winning Family History

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.

As Mr. LeClerc states in his article, this publication includes reference to three additional NGS publications that can help authors:

Though the last two publications are currently not available in print, NGS members can access these in PDF format through the NGSQ Archives.

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.
