Blog type: Genealogy vendor, Writing Your Family History blogs
I’m Tami—your story coach.
As an award-winning writer and multimedia producer, I’ve spent the last 25 years working with museums, educators and corporations helping them shape and share the stories they want to tell.
I became a story coach to promote the value of personal stories—your stories. All of you have stories to share and I’m here to help you do it.
Story coaching is a collaborative process. You bring the stories, photos and memorabilia, while I provide the tools and techniques to help you share them with people you love.
The beauty of story coaching is that you choose exactly how much help you want from me—a little or a lot. We can work together, side by side, creating a print-on-demand book, photo archive or heritage album. Or you can turn the entire project over to me and I’ll hand you a completed project.
Ultimately, that’s what Your Story Coach all about—preserving memories and sharing stories.
So contact me if you have a project in mind. You can reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the contact form on this website.
Blog type: Individual family history
I have been researching my family tree and others since 1989. I formerly edited and published the Seeking Sizemore newsletter, co-authored (with the late Frances Sizemore) the book Sizemore Families and their descendants and also wrote The Watts Family with Roots in Halifax County, Virginia; Spencer, Brizendine, Malone Families of Trigg County, Kentucky; & The Joshua Hardy Family: A Portion of the Pittsyvania County, Virginia Branch.
