Please join us to learn from South Carolina genealogist and author Dr. Walter Curry, Jr. who will present on Writing Family History: The Narrative History Approach. Narrative history is the practice of writing history in a story-based form. It tends to entail writing based on reconstructing a series of short-term events about individuals or specific events in a broader context. Learn about how to write a narrative history about your relatives and the process in writing your family history book using the narrative history approach. Examples from the acclaimed book, The Awakening: The Seawright-Ellison Family Saga, Vol.1, A Narrative History will be used during the presentation.
