Ron Ware, Coordinator
If you are like me, you have filing cabinets and drawers full of documents gathered over years of research. I often think, what is going to happen to all my research after I’m gone? There is a great possibility that mine will end up in the Walker County landfill. No one in my family is interested in genealogy research and the gathering of documents. However, they are interested in the stories of their ancestors, and that is a way to leave our legacy as family historians.
So how do we preserve our work and leave that legacy? We write stories. You may not think of yourself as an author, I know I don’t; but, I have published two books that tell the stories of my ancestors. You can too.
How do we write those stories? Well, we write them as if we were sitting around our living room surrounded by family and telling the stories told by your parents and grandparents. That probably sounds easier said than done. So, here at WHAGS we are forming a writer’s group to hopefully make that task easier. We are calling the group WHAGS Writers.
We would like to keep the groups small, perhaps six to eight members. If we get more interest, we’ll figure out a way to accommodate that. So, if you interested in joining the group, please contact me through my newsletters email address at email@example.com.
Our first meeting will be an organizational meeting held at the Lone Star College Library in Tomball on October 25th from 1:00-2:30PM. Thereafter most meetings will be conducted virtually via Zoom. We will publish a meeting schedule after the initial planning meeting.
Organizational meeting: Wednesday, Oct 25th, 1:00 - 2:30 pm
Location: Lone Star College/Tomball Library
