This class will help both the non-writer and the experienced writer in developing short stories that capture the essence of special family members or events. The focus will be on stories that are about 500 words long but the process can be applied to longer stories.
Survey Your Family Members in 2015 by Marian Kile:
There is no census information collected until 2020 but we can set up our own survey for 2015. Marian will show us how to set up our questions, contact our family members, and record the information for future generations.
Using Maps and Genealogy by Melinda Kashuba:
Maps are your best friends in genealogical research. With a map you can identify locations, measure distances between places, visualize an ancestor’s environment, study possible migration routes, assist in records analysis, and, most important of all: locate records. Events take place at a particular location, records are created at a certain location, and those records are housed at another location. This session introduces you to the variety of maps available for family history research and how to locate them.
