DGS Brown Bag SIG Meets Saturday, 27 Feb – Writing a Book of Family Letters

The Brown Bag group’s February meeting is Saturday, the 27th, from 10:30am to noon, on the 8th floor of the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library in downtown Dallas.

Member Ed Millis will lead a discussion about his experience in writing a book of family letters.

Want to pass on your family lore? What better way than with a book of family correspondence—annotated, illuminated, and explained by you, put in such a form as to make it like a visit to…. where? …maybe to a family birth, a funeral, or to school? Or, of course, to war—wherever your ancestor chose to take you. It is a unique way to get to know your family.

Janet Khashab, SIG leader.
