Reminder Re-Post – Northwest Suburban Council of Genealogists (NWSCG) Next Program Scheduled for Saturday Morning, January 7, 2012 At 10:00 AM – “Organizing and Writing Your Family History” by Steve Szabados

Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to remind everyone that the Northwest Suburban Council of Genealogists (NWSCG) will be having a very good program that will take place this upcoming Saturday, January 7, 2012, at 10:00 AM.  I originally made a post on December 5, 2011 letting you know of this program.

I thought it would be a good reminder to re-post the information again because Steve Szabados will be the guest speaker on a topic near and dear to all of us on “Organizing and Writing Your Family History”.  This is a topic that goes great with New Year’s resolutions.

Steve is a great speaker and will certainly motivate you to begin writing your own family history.  It is not too late to consider attending this program.  All you have to do is just show up!

I also think the timing of this program coincides with a blog post I just did yesterday, January 3, 2012, on an article I read from the Newsletter of the Chicago Genealogical Society, that indicated the importance of writing your Family History in a more formal format to assure that it will get passed down to societies, libraries, archives, the Family History Library and the like.  “Raw Data”, as the article by Craig indicated,  is an almost certainty to be ignored by libraries and the like to take the material.  Your “raw data” must be converted to “published” material to give you a better chance that your hard work does not go to waste and will be accepted by organizations we associate with taking on such material.

So the timing of Steve’s program,  the article published by Craig Pfannkuche as well as the season for New Year’s resolutions are sure serendipitous events at this very time.

Check out the details of the upcoming NWSCG program that I previously posted about.  The program information follows after the following line separator.
