Genealogy writing, publishing workshop
The R. J. Taylor Jr. Foundation will hold a workshop Aug. 13 to help potential authors understand how best to work with the foundation, which gives publishing grants for books containing Georgia genealogy source materials, but not county, church or family histories.
Speakers will be Linda Geiger and Vivian Price. It will be held at the Auburn Avenue Research Library, Atlanta, from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. Admission is free, but pre-registration is required. Lunch is provided.
For information on the grant process, see www.taylorfoundation.org. To register, contact Vivian Price at email@example.com.
The foundation places the books it has funded in about 45 genealogy and local history collections within Georgia and some key libraries elsewhere.
Family health history
For help in compiling your family's health history, use the form on the Department of Health and Human Services website, http://familyhistory.hhs.gov, to record medical background.
This is a project of the surgeon general, and should be helpful for sharing with family members to be sure they know what hereditary diseases are in the family.
