I am excited to announce a new genealogy course is being offered at the Madeline Island School of the Arts! Read here for all the details.
Have you ever dreamed of a genealogy summer get-a-way to a beautiful rural island setting? Then you are going to love Madeline Island School of the Arts! MISA for short, is ranked among the top five art and craft schools in the country. Located on Madeline Island in Lake Superior, it is known for gorgeous scenery and serene settings.
MISA offers workshops that include topics in writing, painting, quilting, photography and in 2021 a combined genealogy and personal history writing workshop!
Brenda Hudson and myself are co-teaching this new workshop titled “Genealogy & Family Stories: Build Your Family Tree and Capture Your Stories.”
Get to Know Brenda

I had the opportunity to meet Brenda at RootsTech 2019 by assisting in her writing workshop. I immediately fell in love with her easy going approach to writing and found her class exceptional and inspiring.
