Mary Anne Vincent

“Bite off What You can Chew: Writing Your Family History”

 

How is writing a family history like eating an elephant?  One bite at a time.  

Mary Anne has written several short biographies of ancestors and three family histories. (Google her name on Amazon books for more information),  She will describe her experiences in doing these and make suggestions how others might take a bite at a time.

Our speaker has spent most of her adult life in education.  She has master’s degrees in history and political science.  She has visited graves of relatives and ancestors in Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Missouri. For many years she has served the Corona Genealogical Society on the Board, as a Speaker, the proofreader of the newsletter, an instructor in the Tuesday classes, and whatever else needs doing!

In her younger and more fit days she officiated basketball games in CA, OR, NJ, WV, and OH.

There is no handout for this presentation so come prepared to take notes and ask questions. And eat ice cream!

 

As always, GUESTS are WELCOME!   —————————

We meet at the 

CORONA PUBLIC LIBRARY

650 S. Main St. (at 6th), Corona, CA 92882

Meetings are held in the Community Room, the first Monday of every month* from 6:30 – 8:30pm.

To network, get to know each other, or receive/give genealogical research assistance, “early birds” are welcome to gather at 6:00pm. ——————-

*in the event that the first Monday is a holiday, the meeting is automatically “bumped” to the second Monday (or scheduled for the prior Monday).. The society is open to anyone who wishes to research his/her family history. Monthly programs are offered to assist us in successfully identifying our ancestors of all backgrounds, cultures, ethnicities, religions, etc. Members are also encouraged to assist others by presenting a topic that will be of interest to the rest of the group and participating in the various projects the society hosts.
