just got easier...

Are You Looking To Transform Dry Dull Facts into Captivating Family History Stories That Everyone Will Want To Read? Then You’re In The Right Place. Share Incredible Stories With The Curious Descendants Club.

hmm...does this sound familiar?

Yes? Then you understand how hard it is

to get hands on practical advice and guidance.

That’s what inspired me to create

the Curious Descendants Club

I was fed up of seeing people struggle to find support that specifically catered for the

unique challenges we face when we write about real people living in the past. I wanted a place where you can:

Thankfully I have the solution…

Introducing the Curious Descendants Club

The Club is an exclusive community for family history lovers that want to write ancestral stories.

It's a membership with family history at it's heart.

It’s jam packed with detailed, practical lessons, challenges, and workbooks, covering everything from getting started, to adding historical detail, to mastering creative writing techniques.

And it’s got the best community in the whole world (ok I may be biased), but seriously the Curiosities are an incredibly friendly and supportive bunch!

What makes the Curious Descendants Club special?

I'VE BEEN IN YOUR SHOES

Created by a family history lover for family history lovers! The Club doesn't just offer lessons on how to write, it offers the perfect balance of writing help and family history tailored advice.

Learn By Doing

The Club is full of practical, hands on exercises and lessons. It's about flexing that writing muscle and learning by doing - not just listening to theory - which you know you'll forget!

Experienced Experts

I bring in a host of experts to provide you with lessons from the very best. From food historians, to lecturers at Birkbeck University, to published authors and beyond. Plus of course my own years of experience!

NO DEADLINES

Progress at your own pace, free from course deadlines. Choose whether to attend workshops live or watch the recordings. Flex the offerings of the Club to your time constraints.

See behind the scenes....

Hey There, I'm Natalie and I Can't Wait To Help...

I’m a self confessed history geek, story lover and Mum of 3 living in the beautiful Somerset countryside in the UK. I started tracing my family tree when I was 18, whilst studying for a degree in English Lit. I told you I love stories, right!? I spent long nights devouring many classic novels. Stories by social commentators (like Charles Dickens) fuelled my interest in discovering the lives of my ancestors – and helped me to understand their world.

After Uni I had a career in Project Management, before embarking on Motherhood and the start of my genealogy business, offering research services. 

It was whilst helping other research their ancestors that I realised just how many people struggle to write their ancestors stories AND as my network of family history friends grew, I realised the huge benefits gained from working with others…thus the Curious Descendants Club was born.

Frequently Asked Questions

There’s a lot going on in the Club, but you don’t have to do it all! One workshop alone is worth more than the cost of the monthly membership fee. That said, I do think the Club works best when you have a minimum of about 4 hours a month to dedicate to learning and practising how to write.

Currently events alternate between taking place at either 10am or 6pm London time. I’ve found this has worked for the vast majority of participants – there are Club members from Australia, New Zealand, East and West Coast USA and Alaska!

This membership is best for people that are passionate about their ancestors’ stories – and those that really want to understand their ancestors’ lives by exploring the time and place within which they lived. It doesn’t matter if you are a genealogy beginner, an expert or somewhere in between. It doesn’t matter if you have never written a thing or if you have published a book. So long as you are care about your ancestors’ stories and want to practice your writing skills, then this is the Club for you.

Yes. I can issue you an invoice and you can pay by bank transfer. As spaces are limited payment must be made within 3 days to secure a space. Contact me here to request an invoice.
