The Genealogist’s Writing Room is an online community for genealogists and family history researchers interested in writing their stories, either as blog posts, journal articles, short stories, legacy journals, or books. Breathe life into your research and share stories of the past with the generations of tomorrow.

Join others in the journey to write and publish the stories that connect families, researchers, and others interested in the lives of those who have come before us.

Discover how to write about

  • People – ancestor profiles, famous/infamous people, family groupings
  • Places – town, workplace, country
  • Events – conflicts (wars, battles, uprisings, riots, protests), disasters, politics
  • Your journey – techniques, methodology, memories, unique finds, personal research experiences, emotional connections

In this online community, you’ll learn how to find the stories within
your genealogy research.

Through the private Facebook group, exclusive group coaching calls/webinars, resources, and writing assignments, you’ll discover writing tips, techniques, and insights to help you produce high-quality genealogy writing. With the support of others on the same writing journey as you, you’ll build your skill and confidence in your ability to write well, and you’ll have the chance to share your writing with others.

Membership is free and open to those who are serious about learning to write well, craft compelling stories, apply accurate citation, and publish their work either in print or online.

Join our private Facebook group, where you can share your successes, get your questions answered, and support other genealogy researchers and writers. We’ll be looking for you!
