"Every man is a quotation from all his ancestors." — Ralph Waldo Emerson
Time Travelers, the writers' group of LLCGS, was organized in August 2014. The name, Time Travelers, describes the group's purpose as they record their personal stories, and the stories of their families and ancestors for posterity.
This is an easy way to start writing. At each meeting, we read a short story (1-2 pages) we have written. The group may offer constructive ideas for improvement. If you write a story for each meeting, in a year you will have 24 stories about your family history.
The group is open to anyone who wants to "write." While we are a special interest group of LLCGS, you don't need to be a member to write about suggested topics that are tied to genealogy. There are no dues and we meet twice a month, Fridays from 10:00 a.m.-noon. Check the calendar for specific dates and locations.
Come join us. Read your story. Be critiqued by a friend...a Time Traveler. Topics are your choice.
We have one project each year - to create holiday gift bags for needy children, ages 5-6. They are distributed to a local elementary school to children who are new to America and are learning English.
