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 while finishing up the fourth installment in my Family History Mystery series, DEAD IN A FLASH, which will be released in August, 2016.  Now back to actual family history!

If your parents, grandparents, great-grands were religious people what was their religious affiliation?  Take a few minutes to write down all you know about each individual in terms of their religious practice, including any worship communities they may have joined or any houses of worship they may have attended. Were they married in a church?  Buried in a churchyard cemetery? Church records may be valuable sources of information.
