Is there a fascinating character or story buried in your family history? Researching the life of a relative, possibly one from several generations ago, can be absorbing and immensely enjoyable, as can piecing it together into a book, film or on tape.
You should already have an idea for a family story you would like to tell and during the day will learn how to research, how to follow a narrative, and how to organise material into the format of your choice. Joanna has herself spent the last seven years researching a story from her own family history.

" The whole experience , the building was beautiful, the lunch lovely, breaks for tea/coffee and biscuits so civilised! Our tutor was brilliant, she helped all the group to gel, and she gave off such a positive enthusiasm about researching family history, that we all went off inspired. We all had time to speak, and we all respected each others stories and the experiences of the tutor. Altogether such a positive experience, I would not hesitate to suggest to others to attend "
