This blog, and accompanying anthology, is the work of participants on the Faber Academy Writing Family History course in 2011. As part of the course, we each produced a synopsis of our proposed books and a sample piece, which can be read in the anthology, Writing Family History, published by Faber Academy.
We are a diverse group, each with a unique story to tell. The stories represented span centuries and continents, from India to Italy, Bulgaria to America, South Africa to Kenya, and, closer to home, London, Wales, Yorkshire and Westmorland. Each family’s story takes places against a exciting historical backdrop and social context.
With this blog we hope to share our journey with you – as we research, struggle, triumph, discover and attempt to give a voice to the stories of the past.
