How to Profile Your Ancestors

I’ve just released the third video in my profile your ancestors series.

In this video, I describe how I profiled one of my ancestors in the story Anne Joseph Gourdine’s Journey to Canada using my story, structure, style, sound process. I hope this inspires you to write similar profiles about some of your ancestors.

If you want even more inspiration, check out some of the stories on Genealogy Ensemble, a writers’ group that counts me as an enthusiastic member.

I’d love to hear how you’re enjoying this series in the comments below.
