Storyboard Your Family History - free webinar by Lisa Alzo now available for limited time

2015-07-29-image500blog
The recording of today's excellent webinar, "Storyboard Your Family History" by Lisa Alzo is now available to view for free at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com for a limited time. Some great comments:
  • Can't wait to get started on my corkboard index cards! Thank you for a great Webinar!!
  • Favorite point: creating ancestor profiles or character sketches rather than attempting to "tell" the family history. Virtual cork board was also an inspirational aspect of Scrivner. Thanks for the program.
  • Excellent presentation and handout! Scrivener looks like a useful tool for those of us with "writer's block," and Lisa' presentation has inspired me to start writing a family history.
