Bringing Family History Alive in Bite-Sized Projects

  • 15 Jan 2022
  • 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
  • Online via GoTo Meeting

Presented by Marian Burk-Wood, sponsored by the Minnesota Genealogical Society
a virtual program from the comfort of your desk.

Learn how to bring family history stories to life in practical, bite-sized projects that can be shared with relatives and posted on genealogy websites. See why and how to narrow your focus to one ancestor, occasion, heirloom, photo, or place. Like a sprint rather than a marathon, each project takes a short time and gives you flexibility to be creative in spotlighting one aspect of family history to share with relatives now. Ideas include brief ancestor bios and booklets, heirloom stories, ancestor coloring books, photo books, and video-based family history. Class includes lots of specific examples to inspire you and give you fresh ideas for bite-sized projects of your own family history.
