Overview

Introduction:

Learn to write your autobiography or family history, one story at a time, is something Jerry Lincecum and Peggy Redshaw have been teaching out-of-school adults for 25 years.  Their program is called Telling Our Stories (TOS) and what they teach is how to move beyond a family tree or set of genealogical facts to craft stories.  By reminiscing in response to simple questions in a workshop format and converting memories into short narratives, the participants begin to record their family history.
