Why Blogging Works for Sharing Family History


Polish Genealogical Society of America
Speaker: Craig Siulinski

Have you considered starting your own genealogy blog to share the compelling stories of a family line or of a particular ancestor? This presentation sets out to show you how using blogs to write and share family history can be both exciting and easy to do. Plus, it allows other family members to contribute to the narrative. The hard work comes in writing interesting and captivating stories but the effort is well-worth the legacy you leave behind.

NOTE: Attendance at the library is free and open to members and non-members. So they have an idea of the attendance; those who will be coming to the library for the program are requested to register. This can be done online via the library’s calendar for the event: https://schaumburg.libnet.info/events?a=Adults&r=thismonth&days=62/ or can call the library at 847-985-4000 and ask for program registration. The presentation will also be offered as a free Webinar to members. To defray costs, non-members will be charged a $10 fee.
