Last night I attended a free two-hour workshop by family historian and author of popular histories, Carol Baxter, on how to write interesting family histories.
I was pleased to learn that I had already incorporated one of her techniques, placing my ancestors in their social, political and economic historical context.
The highlight for me was winning the door prize, a copy of her book, Writing Interesting Family Histories.
