Learn what should and should not be done when compiling a written family history. The session leader has written a book-length manuscript about the life of his father, who was born in 1907, was exiled from Lithuania with his family as a child, survived the Holocaust, and re-created his life in America. This session will cover what works well, what is helpful, and what should be avoided. At least half of the session will be dedicated to taking questions.
