How can we, based on dry facts, write good personal stories? @ ExCeL London

How can we, based on dry facts, write good personal stories? @ ExCeL London
As genealogists, we gather facts, but how can we take our findings and turn them into an interesting personal story? Where should you start? Have you written what you remember from childhood and adolescence? Or what your parents or grandparents told you about their life? The attendee will learn how to distinguish between fiction and creative non-fiction writing and how to use the facts they have collected to write a good story. Learn how your childhood memory images stored in one’s brain can yield stories with a personal flavor, and how technology can aid you to recreate a room or a home and bring those memories to light. You will also learn how to organize the background material using spreadsheets or databases to register the material you wish to include. We will also look into how to use a mind map to sort different parts of a manuscript and make connections between people, events or relatives. Lastly, learn about software to help you in the writing process.

Transmigration through Great Britain @ ExCeL London
From Europe, it is estimated that forty million people emigrated between 1830 and 1930, with more than nine million travelling from Europe via Liverpool. What routes did they take through Great Britain? What immigration sources are available in England, and what documents would have been used during the immigration process? Several specific examples will be given to follow emigrants from Norway through Great Britain to North America or even Australia. What means of transport did they use? What occurred during the travel process and what occurred when they arrived in Canada or the United States?
