Why Our Stories Matter (Two Sessions)

September 21, 2023

Peter Burke, journalist and Irish/ NZ historian, presents an interactive seminar on writing family histories. Using his book True to Ireland—sold in New Zealand, Ireland, the USA and Australia—Peter will show how he began a family history then.

As he broadened his research, how the scope of the book grew. He will also share what he has learned about researching, writing, publishing and marketing.
