My Own Story Submission
Although this tutorial covers the different types of genealogy writing, we do have a section in the journal called My Own Story. This story format is typically (although not always) the chronological story style and is by far the most common received by us at MGS. It is the chronological facts of a family, fleshed out with additional details. We have all read these stories—Bill Smith was born…….and so forth. Details of occupation, the places they lived and when, etc. are expanded upon, but the narrative is the chronological history of that family. This is a viable way to tell your family story and we welcome these submissions not only for the My Own Story section, but for general inclusion in the journal.
