Writing Workshop: Your Family in the Americas – ROEN

0 Comment

Whether your ancestors are indigenous to the Americas, came via migration, bondage or immigration, you will have an opportunity to explore writing about that experience in this session (so please bring paper and pen or a laptop). If you don’t know much about your family’s story, we will discuss strategies for learning more.

Duane Roen has been tracing his roots since his teenage years, building a database with more than 32,000 ancestors. He and his wife, Maureen Roen, have also been recording their family history since 1978 by writing more than 19,000 daily journal entries on their children and other family members. Combining his professional and personal interests, Duane worked with colleagues to establish courses on writing and recording family history at Arizona State University. He also is founding coordinator of the Project for Writing and Recording Family History in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts at ASU.
