Assignment for November: Write about a family story that you have proved or disproved. Or bring pieces from your project. We will share these at the meeting.
This is our fifth year for the group but newcomers are welcome to join any session. We'll start by helping people get over the fear of writing about their lives and the lives of their ancestors and then start work on a personal project.
