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.
