In Response to Family history turns into a career for me. by rgard
Congratulations on the Award for your book(s). I saw a similar posting somewhere else just now and responded to it. So happy it has worked out for you. I know it is hard work to put words down but you have a story to tell about your history and those are usually interesting. My mother-in-law came from Czechoslovakia and often said she should write a book...but she only had a 3rd grade education and it was probably overwhelming to actually do it.
She was a wonderful and talented person, had eight children (seven living). She cooked up a storm and could make a meal out of almost nothing. Never wasted any ingredients. She lived with us for nine years and now that I think of it, I seldom heard her talk of her upbringing. I wish I had thought to ask her about it. And, perhaps I could have taken down the notes and helped her - but I was in the middle of raising four children and doing a little side work to bring in some extra money - and it never occurred to me.
