A no-nonsense guide for the beginner, this simple step-by-step approach to writing family history will prove invaluable to family historians, genealogical organisations, local and community historians, students of writing programs, teachers of writing, and libraries...Dr Noeline Kyle has used her extensive knowledge and expertise on family history research and writing to develop and facilitate writing support groups for family historians. She has also published her ideas in newspapers, community journals, popular books and bulletins, and is the author of several books including The Family History Writing Book and We Should've Listened to Grandma: Women and Family History.
