PRESERVING YOUR HERITAGE

Each of us has a story from our ancestors or our own story to tell. It's up to us to write these experiences down. In Preserving Your Heritage, you will learn the most important elements of writing. These ideas will help you to write the stories of your heritage in a way that will bring them to life. Since 2006, Linda Weaver Clarke has traveled to 17 states and taught hundreds of classes, giving ideas on writing an ancestor's biography or your own autobiography. Two professors said they learned more from her two-hour workshop than a six-week course at the college, simply because she uses examples.

"Ms Clarke appeals to genealogists and aspiring authors. I was terribly impressed! She knows her subject and can present it wonderfully. She is thorough, professional, yet strikes just the right chord with her audience." -- Mary Jo Gohlke - Adult Programming, Stockton-San Joaquin County Public Library, California

UNDERSTANDING HOLIDAY TRADITIONS

The origin of many holidays may surprise you. How they got started and why may not be what you expected. It is interesting to find out how each holiday tradition came about. Our children have fun celebrating April Fools Day or Halloween but what was the inspiration behind each one? Is it true that the Puritans actually stopped the Americans from celebrating Christmas? Was it really outlawed? Who were the first people who placed flowers on the graves of the soldiers as a Memorial and when was the first Juneteenth actually celebrated? The answers to these questions may be surprising. The beginnings of each American Holiday have an interesting story to tell.

NEVER TO LATE TO DREAM

In this autobiography, I talk about the trials I faced when I had scoliosis... the casts and operations that lasted for three years. Attending college, serving as a young missionary, and falling in love were years to remember. Why did I call this book "Never Too Late To Dream?" Every accomplishment I achieved happened after I turned 50. After the age of 50, I graduated from college with a Bachelor's Degree in Theatre and Arts, I performed for a concert series and made a CD, and I became an author. I also toured the United States, teaching people how to write their biographies. I believe it is never too late to achieve your dreams. These were years to remember.
