SLOCGS Bulletin. The November issue had SIG-GW, Group I members Mary Hansen and Janelle Pond Richardson's collaborative piece, "Our Ancestors Knew One Another."
Group II's facilitator, Lynn Storrs, tells me SIG-GW, Group II has room for new members. You can find more information about the group at our website.
Most of our members joined a writing group because they want to write down their family traditions, their history, and their own personal memories for future generations--and for the siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, etc., who may be motivated to share their own memories once they read someone else's. One byproduct of being in a group is getting ideas on write about your own family history. For example, one of our members wrote a piece about her ancestors' party line, another about her family's musical traditions, another about a treasured photograph that had been passed down through the generations. The possibilities are endless.
If you're interested, and I hope you are, please email Lynn who can tell you more about Group II.
