Ancestry.com teams up with Midwest Writing Center for family history seminar

Ancestry.com is a sponsor for the Midwest Writing Center’s  “Writing Your Family History” to be offered Saturday, May 5, from 1-3 p.m. at the center on the third floor of the Bucktown Center for the Arts in Davenport.

Ancestry.com has donated a 1-year World Deluxe Membership to Ancestry.com (a $300.00 retail value) in support of the seminar and all seminar participants will be eligible to win the Ancestry.com 1-year membership.  

The family history writing seminar is designed for the person who desires to preserve their family stories for posterity, but may need support and inspiration to get started.  The seminar will share tips on how to begin and stay motivated, and to inspire family history writers to preserve those rich, wonderful stories before they are lost.

Facilitator is Susan Collins, an avid family history preservationist and president of the MWC Board of Directors. She is a graduate of Augustana College, a former high school social studies teacher, and has led training sessions for Black Hawk College, MWC, and facilitated the “Writing Your Life’s Legacy Letter.” Her work has also appeared in various professional journals.
