About Laura Hedgecock


Author Laura HedgecockLaura Hedgecock’s passion for helping others share their stories stems from a gift left by her grandmother. Shortly before her death, Hazel Crymes passed on an old spiral notebook filled with a lifetime of memories, which she dubbed her “Treasure Chest of Memories.”  Her writings included childhood memories, stories of her children as they grew, good recipes, and wisdom she had gathered along the way.

Drawing on her grandmother’s “Treasure Chest,” as well as her experience in genealogy, photography, scrapbooking, writing, and blogging, and her own journey compiling such a “Treasure Chest,” Ms. Hedgecock empowers memory collectors with down-to-earth, practical advice and creative ideas.

Ms. Hedgecock’s book, Memories of Me: A Complete Guide to Telling and Sharing the Stories of Your Life (originally titled Treasure Chest of Memories: How to Capture and Share the Stories of Your Life)  guides hobbyists with writing prompts, exercises, and varied examples. Using this guide, even beginning writers will find that they too are capable of sharing their memories and compiling a legacy for their loved ones.

Her upcoming book, Blogging for Family History: How to Launch a Site and Make It Successful, provides a road map for family historians to launch a professional blogsite.

  4. Hi Laura, I am a cousin and found your site researching the hedgecock family. I am so excited to discover your site. My grandmother was Flavil Hedgecock from N. Carolina. I am trying to find Roberts book to purchase. I look forward to reading some of your writing and so happy to have found you!

    • Hi Luverne! Wow, another Hedgecock. Technically, you’re related to my husband, but I still count you as family. I’ll email you Robert Hedgcock’s (No “e”) address. Let’s compare trees sometime soon!

  5. Mr. Laura,
    I ran across a blog metioning Mr. Robert Hedgcock’s book about the Hedgecocks when I was doing research on Elizabeth Idol, wife of Elisha, and later Martram/Martin Glasscock.

    Explaining my interest: My mother’s family has been in the area ever since. I may be related to Hedgecocks , but definitely Deans, Weavils, Staffords, Teagues, and Idols. Many of my ancestors are buried at Bunker Hill Cemetery in Kernersville.

    Would you be willing to forward this to Mr. Hedgcock? I would like to Purchase a copy of his book if he still has one. It would be treasured.
    Many Thanks,

    Lisa Denny Gonzalez
