Writing For Future Generations
Dear AfriGeneas Writers:
The compelling subtitle of genwriters.com is "Writing For Future Generations." Our mission as family history writers is to present the life and times of our ancestors. All of us are determined that our present and future audiences will appreciate our ancestors in the era in which they lived.
Writing the history of Africans in the Americas is still thought to be a challenge. Our AfriGeneas family has overcome some of its challenges. Through our research we have uncovered documented information from many archival sources.
Genwriters is a website that offers a plethora of information, advice and resources on how to shape and write a history of three-dimensional people that we embrace as our ancestors.
In one of its opening paragraphs Genwriters states:
“Why Social History?
Social history is the study of the lives of ordinary people. Where history focuses on the who, what, when, and where, social history looks at why and how. It looks at why things happen and how events affect people. Social history is the study of society and cultures. Social history looks at how events affect people collectively.
