On Thursday, June 14th the Burlington Public Library will be hosting “Recording Memoirs and Family Histories” at their location at 166 E. Jefferson Street in Burlington, Wisconsin. This recording event will take place from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm.

Recording Memoirs and Family Histories is organized by the local writing group, which will be meeting to share stories and practice their writing skills. Participants do not have to be good writers to work on documenting their personal memoirs, or to record and write their family histories. All participants need to enjoy this learning event is an interest in chronicling their valuable stories and family history for all time. Guests who attend this event are asked to gather up all photos, mementos, documents, and their collection of family stories and bring them with them on this day. There is no advance registration required for this event. Those attending will require a pen or pencil, a booklet to write in or plenty of loose-leaf paper.

Participants at this event will gain valuable knowledge on how to use genealogy records to help them trace their family history, as well as valuable writing advice about how to set up memoirs, and books that document their lives and their family’s history. Guests will learn as they build on their writing experience. Poster printing may have been used to promote this event to library members and the public.

This event is free to everyone. For more information, please visit the Burlington Public Library website, or call Judy Rockwell at 262-763-7623.
