Product Description

Family history sleuthing is the biggest hobby worldwide. Most genealogy books and sites show how to research your family. TV programs like 'Who Do You Think You Are?' glamorise. But crafting your findings into a format others will want to read, is the real challenge.  Why are you writing it? Who is your prospective reader? How can you craft the facts for them to access easily?

Chapters in Writing a Non Boring Family History E-Book are based on answering the most common questions asked during Hazel's popular workshops.These include:

  • Avoiding chronological boredom 
  • Using humour
  • Dramatising but keeping to the facts
  • Fact, faction or fiction?  Can't call it a history, if you 'fiddle' with the facts.
  • Viewpoints. Whose?
  • What if the family criticise what you've written?
  • Collaborating?
  • Diplomatically handling family secrets?
  • What if you've only got a name on a shipping list?

In Writing a Non Boring Family History E-Book, strategies are included for

  • interviewing relatives
  • shaping anecdotes, not just listing dates
  • structuring
  • publishing
  • costing
  • launching
  • distributing, and
  • overcoming procrastination.

This E-Book version of the revised edition of the best selling guide acknowledges the latest e-formats that writers use, includes tips on how to write history for children, or write a eulogy and covers the growing interest in touring military battlefields and researching on-site material.

Also covers how to:

  • interview elderly relatives and people close to the family
  • use anecdotes and record memories
  • do justice to intriguing ancestors
  • structure the drama and tension
  • inject life into just a name on a shipping list
  • present the family's secrets diplomatically
