  1. Jennifer Alford

    Cindy Freed reviewed the In-Brief here. She says, “Woodcock knows her stuff and answered my questions and lots more. She gives the reader detailed steps on how to put your family history book together. Starting with choosing who the book is going to be about like, “One ancestor, one branch, one line,” to gathering the material for your book. She touches on tender subjects like “Dealing with the skeletons and scandals.”

    Christine is precise and thorough taking the reader through all the steps needed to put together a valuable family history. She breaks each section down to manageable, workable segments. As I continue to read the guide I’m thinking I can do this.”
