    The Family History Writers' Special Interest Group is schedule to meet at the Vigo County Public Library on ten consecutive Tuesdays from January through October 2016.  During the winter months the class will meet in the afternoon and  in the evenings during the summer months.  Those unable to attend a meeting will be able to keep in contact through a FreeForums account set up for our group by the library.

    If you are interested in joining this special interest group, please email wvgs@inwvgs.org

    Anna Sayers, VCPL Special Collections Manager, "would encourage individuals from every writing level to come to the class. Those without much experience will be able to start from the ground up with other writers, and those with more experience can share their writing to get valuable feedback.  It’s important to remember writing is never going to be perfect on the first attempt. It takes time, but it does get easier with experience. 

    Anna also states "Many people are intimidated at the thought of writing creatively. Telling a creative story about your family’s history can be even more overwhelming. Not only is it important to include the correct genealogical information, but it is just as important that the narrative is compelling to the reader. Here, attendees will have the ability to learn about different ways they can go about creating a creative family history piece, they will be able to workshop their writings with like-minded individuals to find out what works well and what may need improvement, and they will be able to bounce ideas off of each other."

    "Frontier Resources and the Society of Indiana Pioneers"

     by

    Jan Aikman Dickson


    Monday, November 14, 2016

        6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

       VCPL Rooms A, B & C

    6:00 p.m. - Refreshments & Socializing


    In celebration of Indiana’s Bicentennial, we’ll explore how to learn more about relationships, stories, and ideals of frontier life.  We’ll focus on resources such as Draper Manuscripts; land records; 1816 Constitution documents; and Society of Indiana Pioneers records, publications, and programs.  Your own ancestor may already be found on the Society’s website under “Ancestors” or “Pioneer Founders” at http://www.indianapioneers.com.


    Jan Aikman Dickson grew up in Terre Haute.  Wabash River boating energized her family before she understood its role in helping form Indiana.  Purdue University history courses sparked discovery of over 30 ancestors arriving in Indiana from1807 to 1840, many in Parke and Vermillion Counties.

    Jan is an Indiana “Sagamore of the Wabash” and received awards from the Conference of Chief Justices and National Center for State Courts for founding the national Judicial Family Institute (JFI).  JFI shares ideas on ethics, stress management, and other areas unique to judge’s households and extended family.  She encourages all families today to take heart from pioneer stories.

    Her husband, retired Indiana Chief Justice Brent Dickson, works part-time celebrating Indiana’s Bicentennial and helping improve the legal system.  They look forward to solving mysteries in his family tree.  They enjoy 3 sons and their wives and 9 remarkable grandchildren.
