Speaker Bio

Since 2011, J-D grad Janeen Bjork has combined 30 years of experience as a television researcher and presenter, editor and educator, with her love of family history. She has been teaching Genealogy, Newspaper and DNA classes, mostly in New England and New York, and now virtually. When a nonagenarian Genealogy student asked in 2018, “Do you have any ideas for Christmas presents?” she began an unexpected, challenging, and heartfelt, year-long adventure. The result was a 182-page family history book that memorialized the lives and legacies of 11 family members who lived together in a house in a small town in Nebraska, in the first half of the 20th century. Her second book project [which was given to the client's family for Christmas 2020] is a book of family travel photos, album entries and newspaper clippings from 1912-1913. Her third book, a more traditional approach to family lines and photos, has begun with the scanning and organization of almost 300 family photos, as well as research of the family's considerable history. Janeen has also combined scrapbooking with family history and created family murals ("Books on a Wall"). 


Program Details

The program will discuss the options wannabe book writers have, from DIY (scrapbooking, murals (books on a wall) or self-publishing with a print template), to hiring photo and design help, to commissioning a company that specializes in producing heirloom-quality family books. She will share what she learned as she worked with clients and their families, along with an expert book designer, to preserve photos, letters, diaries, documents, and scrapbook entries for posterity. The program is aimed at Genealogists of all levels, who are looking for best practices for writing and sharing one's family story.
