For writers and readers of Historical Fiction.

Wikipedia defines Historical Fiction as telling a story that is set in the past. That setting is usually real and drawn from history, and often contains actual historical persons, but the main characters tend to be fictional. Writers of stories in this genre, while penning fiction, attempt to capture the manners and social conditions of the persons or time(s) presented in the story, with due attention paid to period detail and fidelity.

Mary, that sounds like a great idea and a treasure for the generations of your family.

I want to write my Grandparent's story. It's really rather....epic. The only trouble is, Mom and her two sisters disagree about the stories. Why didn't I think to ask Grandma when she was still here to tell me? (forehead slap). 

Good luck with your story, and enjoy the process as much as the product. :-)

Sounds like a cool idea. My uncle on my dad's side and my aunt on my mother's side were the historians of the two branches of my family tree. My uncle passed years ago and my aunt is not well. Both of them passed everything to me - genealogy trees, pictures, written accounts, letters - piles and piles of stuff.

A funny thing I learned from it all is that even though my dad's side claims German ancestry and my mom's side claims Slovak, I'm actually mostly Irish. It's very weird how it turned out.

I call the 'book' I am writing 'Historical semi-fiction'. It's based on stories told by my grandparents  and great grandparents

I was told by a friend that 'they didn't havetime to tell the stories, so you have to do it" .So far I have 17 chapters that family and firends like.

I really would like to get it done even if only for myself and familu members
