Bookshelf to Coffee Table – Creating a Captivating Family History with Fiona Brooker, Memories in Time (1)

The problem with a traditional family history book is that they take a long time to write and then let’s face it, they get looked at when they are first received and then put on a bookshelf.

We’re going to look at the steps to put together a captivating family history.

  • Identify your theme
  • Keep it short – think browse, not read
  • Gather your resources
  • Learn how to use your tools
  • Publish and share

It's so much better to have the coffee table version of your family history, that is picked up and looked at often.

Fiona is also speaking at the 2022 Auckland Family History Expo, 12-14 August.

About the speaker:

Fiona has served as both President and Treasurer of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists (NZSG) and convened the 2008 and 2018 national conferences.

She holds a Higher Certificate in Genealogy from the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies and began Memories in Time to help others trace their family history. She is a co-founder of Talking Family History.

This event is part of Auckland Council Libraries’ We Read Auckland | Ka Pānui Tātau i Tāmaki Makaurau.
