Holidays Are Perfect Time To Write Family Biography For County Book
The Washington County Bicentennial History and Families book has received many submissions and book orders so far, but many more are welcome. The Washington County Historical Society is still taking family biographies and book orders through January, and as you gather with family for Christmas and New Years, it provides the perfect time to write your free 500 word family biography for the book.
Families get together in December and think about their relatives more this month than any other, so while you’re gathered with your parents, siblings, cousins, and other relatives, use each other to help write your family biographies and help make this county historical book a once-in-a-lifetime keepsake,” said Elaine Rucker, chairman of the book committee.
A few thousand brochures were handed out earlier this month through your mail with information on how to write your 500 word family biography, along with examples of them for you to see.
The pre-sale also continues at the lowest available price of $54.95 per book, so you will want to buy your copy now!
If you need more information, please contact Elaine Rucker at 618-327-8075 or visit the Washington County Historical Society Museum on Saturdays from 2-4 pm.
