Join the AFHS Life & Family History Writing Workshop this winter. This small group will provide ideas on how to write down your family stories. Previous participants have found these workshops to be not only fun, but also a great motivator to get those stories on paper!

Next group runs at the AFHS Library for 10 Tuesdays, February 13 – April 17 at 1:00 – 3:15 pm. Cost is $170 (members) or $200 (non-members).
