These history pages were written as part of a “Writing your Life” class taught by Shirley Garrison at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in Arlington Heights, IL. This class was part of an adult education series conducted at the church.

Course was based on a book – “An Easy-to-Follow Guide to Writing an Autobiography” by Mary Borg.


Each week the student was expected to write several pages on some part of their life –   ancestors, childhood, teen age years, leaving home etc. It is those pages that are being shared here.
