Nona also has a family photo blog and a family history website. In this presentation, Nona will share the techniques she used to overcome her reluctance to do genealogy and her fear of writing about people she didn't know personally. Nona is not a professional writer, but is passionate about family history writing. She believes that everyone can write and need to share their family stories. Come learn about ways you can get your family interested in your genealogy research and leave a legacy for future generations.
