Storytellers Special Interest Group – 4 Dec 2021

Hosted by Marti Swanson

Storytellers will meet at 10:30 on Saturday, Dec. 4, in the “Commons” in the rear area of the main floor of the Schaumburg Library, near the AV desk.

December's topic:

The difficult experiences we have today often seem petty by comparison with those our ancestors had:  floods and famines, monarchs and mayhem, invaders and impoverishment.  Nonetheless, all lives have difficulties and challenges:  physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual.  Write about one:

The most difficult thing (situation) I’ve ever encountered / experience I’ve ever had OR the most difficult thing (situation) an ancestor ever encountered / experience s/he ever had.

To quote our colleague Steve, “. . . genealogy forms, charts and documents [a]re boring and hard to understand by most non-genealogists.  They wan[t] to see the stories of what’s in the documents.” --Steve Szabados. CAGGNI NL, Sept, 2021, p 7

Please bring two copies of your story for sharing.  As always, you may wish to share something else you’ve been working.
