The fourth video in my Profile Your Ancestor series is now available.
This series is designed to encourage genealogists to write narrative stories about their research, such as those on the Genealogy Ensemble blog.
These kinds of stories:
- deepen your research by encouraging you to look into tiny details you might not otherwise question;
- are more widely read, even by people who don’t necessarily appreciate how important family history research can be;
- are great ways to compile a book about your ancestors; and
- can be fun ways to reach out to other family members.
This video summarizes the points I made in videos 1, 2, and 3 to get you writing such stories about your ancestors. It also invites anyone struggling to consider joining my upcoming profile your ancestors course. This is a great way to get some assistance getting started.
If you’ve got some stories written, I’d love to see links to them in the comments below.
