Fill in the Dash: How to Write Short Life Sketches – HARTMANN-BOWDEN

0 Comment

The dash between the birth and death dates represents a life. Are you preserving the life sketches that make that dash come alive? In this class you will learn some techniques to write short sketches of life stories for those in your family tree.  Different styles will be used including a form poem. Come to class with a notebook to write your class sample. Bring your FamilySearch login and password so you can add your sketch to Memories before leaving class.

Mary Hartmann-Bowden first became interested in Family History when she joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1977.   A mission and busy life prevented her from keeping up with the new interest until 2010 after attending a Family History Expo. In September of 2021 she became a volunteer at the Mesa Temple Visitors’ Center. Shortly thereafter, she began to teach classes for the guests. Mary has also served as a Temple and Family History Consultant in her local church unit for the past year. Countries of research interest are England and Germany. Going to genealogy conferences, online classes, and being a member of the local Family History organization has taught Mary many things and she is excited to share what she has learned with others.
