Dusty Books and Faded Papers: Writing a Community History

Marie Amerson’s book is a resource that every local church historian needs in their writing toolbox along with Fred Maser’s How to Write a Local Church History. The book is based on her experiences as an educator and church historian for the Corinth Methodist Church in Johnson County, Georgia. The strength of this work is how to effectively organize the writing process by budgeting time, collecting the right materials, delegating responsibility, and providing a reasonable finish date for the project.
