June Meeting - Writing Your Family History Book
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Location: TBD
GUEST SPEAKER: Cathy Rosenberger
 
Cathy is a member of HCGS, born in Maryland and has always been interested in history and, for an unknown reason, says she is drawn to cemeteries.
 
Her parents passed away in 1999 and 2000, and she became the keeper of their "stuff." Ten years after their passing, she started going through their papers.
 
"I became very interested in the letters my father wrote home to my mother during WWII. I transcribed the letters, added photos and supporting documents. Copies of my book went to the Family History Center, Army Heritage and Education Center, Library of Congress, Montgomery County Historical Society, and more."
 
LECTURE TOPIC: WRITING FAMILY STORIES - Start Small
 
"All the people will live as long as you remember them"
Quote from Jessica Tandy in Fried Green Tomatoes
 
Cathy made a handout of hints of how to write your family history and what and why she wrote her story. She included guidelines, which include a timeline of the person she was inspired by, and she presented it to her Grandmother on her 100th Birthday!
