I have recorded my family’s written history by developing a story for each set of great-grandparents, grandparents, parents and so on. It certainly makes it simpler to follow especially since many of our relatives bore the same name and lived in the same communities. Thanks for the tips and keep up the great work, Ancestry!

One other correction, though. The type size recommended would be 12 to 14 points, rather than picas.

I appreciate that kind of feedback. Makes me a more careful writer. Antidotal, although a word, is the wrong word here. Good catch!

I have always said investigating the stories behind the names and dates on a family tree are what makes genealogy a worthwhile hobby. Writing about good times is fairly easy, it’s the difficult and unhappy times I struggle with

Love the ideas of making the stories vivid with descriptions that activate the five senses. Thanks again for these great tips & suggestions!

What I’ve finished so far is just written information about who they married, dates, etc. After reading this article I know I need to go back and make it more interesting by adding more information on locations, and personal observations. Thanks for sharing!
