Join your friends and genie buds in The Genealogist’s Writing Room.

This online community is for genealogists and family history researchers interested in writing their stories, either as blog posts, journal articles, short stories, legacy journals, or books. Breathe life into your research and share stories of the past with the generations of tomorrow. Join others in the journey to write and publish the stories that connect families, researchers, and others interested in the lives of those who have come before us.

If you’re interested in writing about any of the following, request to join our group, and get started writing! 

  • People – ancestor profiles, famous/infamous people, family groupings
  • Places – town, workplace, country
  • Events – conflicts (wars, battles, uprisings, riots, protests), disasters, politics
  • Your journey – techniques, methodology, memories, unique finds, personal research experiences, emotional connections

In this online community, you’ll learn how to find the stories within
your genealogy research.
