Tips, tools and tricks to write your family narrative


By April Holthaus
Special to The PREVIEW

The Archuleta County Genealogical Society is delighted to announce the return of Katherine Sturdevant, professor of history at Pikes Peak Community College for over 20 years.

Sturdevant works with the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum and the Pikes Peak Library District and gives many public presentations. She has published two books on family history and manages two historic preservation projects.

If you’ve always wanted to write your family’s story, but don’t know where or how to begin, this workshop will help you get started. The stories of your ancestors’ lives can only be appreciated and experienced through family narratives. If they are not written down, something immeasurable will be lost. It’s best to do so before you forget.

Sturdevant will offer useful information including tips, tools and tricks you’ll need to get beyond the dates, places and names to bring your family tree to life.

Please join us for this instructive meeting on Saturday, June 4, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and bring your friends. Drinks will be provided, but bring a sack lunch. We meet at the United Methodist Church at 434 Lewis St. This event is open to the public.
