Writing A Biographical Sketch|Prime Time Plus Club

A biographical sketch is a short description highlighting a person’s main traits by summarizing their achievements, character, experiences, etc. to help you see the world through their eyes.

We welcome back Lori Bessler, the genealogy and local history specialist in the Wisconsin Historical Society's Library, Archives and Museum Collections division as she teaches us that there are many ways to share your genealogical research with family members. One of the most effective methods is to write a biographical sketch. This presentation makes writing this sketch a fairly simple project that will catch the attention of most of your family members.
