Also part of “Let’s Read Auckland”
The problem with a traditional family history book is that they take a long time to write and then let’s face it they get looked at when they are first received and then put on a bookshelf.

We’re going to look at the steps to put together a captivating family history.
• Identify your theme
• Keep it short – think browse, not read
• Gather your resources
• Learn how to use your tools
• Publish and share
It's so much better to have the coffee table version of your family history, that is picked up and looked at often.

Fiona is also speaking at the 2022 Auckland Family History Expo, 12-14 August
