Ms. Dunec, an instructor and counselor at Foothill College for 30 years, has taught the 10-week class at the Menlo Park Library and other local venues for many years.
"With the help of detailed weekly guidelines, class members will learn how to create a written record of their family's history, review their own life experiences, and develop meaningful insights into their lives," Ms. Dunec says in a class announcement.
Beginners may sign up for Tuesday sessions, from 10 a.m. to noon Jan. 10 to March 13, at the Avenidas Senior Center in Palo Alto. Another group, this one for women, will meet Thursdays, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Jan. 12 to March 15, at a private Portola Valley home.
The course fee is $150.
