โ€œThere are two lasting bequests we can give our children. One is roots. The other is wings.โ€  - Hodding Carter Jr

There are stories all around us. As writers, we find truth and inspiration every day, and through our passion and talent, we are able to show the world something they haven't seen before. Whether you have an interest in telling the tales of your ancestors or stories from your own lives we have the resources you need to find the most information you can to write the best piece. We hope to find people who are interested in writing and sharing their family stories. Whether it's in short story or poetry format, we want to help YOU record and share your own story. So, who are you?

These items offer many different resources to help you on your journey so be sure to look them over.
