I am not a writer but in developing our 1st reunion book for my family I wanted it to sound like I was sitting down there talking to the person reading. I also wanted the younger children to be able to understand what happened to get me started. They look at us and tend to think we were enslaved because we are 'so old'. To get the flow in the booklet going I talked about finding records what I felt when I found something like using 'hooray!' Very informal to keep them reading. Some relatives became very helpful by letting me copy very old pitcures to show a picture for the names. Other's are still reluctant, Lord knows why! I have been more interested in viewing family internet sites that show pictures within the flow of the story. I've even jumped to the end then back to the beginning to compare who could look like the past. If you would like to view my web page please do so. Stating a lot of facts without looking at scenery has aways been boring to me. Dee Woodtor's book has been a fantastic source for my research. BUY THAT BOOK.
