I do a family newsletter 4 times a year. Most of the family that I send it to seems to enjoy what I write. I try to keep them informed about graduations, birthdays, weddings, births, death, fun activities that the family may be part of. I ask them for any information that they would like to share with other members. Right now, we have a family email address and I will begin to send my news via the email to all that have sent their email address. Family members who do not have an email address, I will continue to mail the newsletter. If you do not have any info from the extended family, than start with writing events that have taken place within your immediate family.ur family. That is what I had to do in the beginning. Whenever I thought something was news worthy, I would jot it down and keep it for my newsletter. I hope that this will be of some help.
