Five Minute Family History

Save the stories! Become a story-catcher during your coffee break!

Welcome!  I'm glad you found me. I hope we can have fun here and do something really important, too. Doing family history isn’t only about visiting graveyards and documenting all the begats of dead ancestors, it’s also capturing living memory and creating a story your descendants will be eager to read.   So set aside a few short minutes–with morning coffee, at lunchtime or before bed–and write, type or speak fast!

I've been away for a long while now due to writing deadlines.  The second in my Family History Mystery series was just released, DEATH IN REEL TIME.  So now I can get back to some family history prompts.

Who in your family, past or present, had the reputation of being the best cook?   What was his/her signature dish?  Was this a dish of his/her own invention or did they learn to make it from someone?  If so, who?  Describe the dish and jot down any details about this person that come to mind.  You can flesh it out later, for now just capture the info.
