Genealogy Series: Penning the Perfect Obit

No one likes to think about writing an obituary, and yet this small contribution to the weekly newspaper is a vital narrative. Obituaries can celebrate life, personality, struggles and triumphs. Unfortunately, obituaries are often left to the last minute, relying on the most willing family member to dig up details. Why not take a moment now to write that obit? Do it for yourself or do it for a friend! We’ll examine a variety of obituaries. We’ll discuss standard framework and structure. We’ll brainstorm big life highlights to include and, finally, we’ll scribble it all down. Participants will leave with a rough draft to polish.
