Here's the Scoop

carolCarol Rice: YOUR Family History Starts with YOU With ever-advancing technology, it’s tempting to think starting our family history begins with the perfect software package or latest program. Although these make our search and presentation easier than ever, the truth is, family history starts with YOU; being willing to share YOUR story, and sitting down to listen to others’. This workshop will teach the steps to get started on YOUR living history and ideas for gathering the stories around you. 

teresaTeresa Clark: Harvesting Story - Nurturing a Storytelling Family Family storytelling is approaching extinction; help revive the oral tradition! In this hands-on, get-you-talking, session participants will learn to create, cultivate, and share enticing bite-sized family story nuggets. Tips on research, interviewing, and storytelling will be included. Your family has stories the world needs to hear. Use you smartphone to playfully recapture memories of family and get your family talking. No matter the age, all are capable of recalling enough of their past to tell their own tale. No matter the age, we all need to learn from one another. Class discussion will be held on the purpose of telling tales from your life and the blessings the sharing of these tales can bring to families. Bring your smartphone and a buddy (or your family) and lets’ get talking!

Grab some family or some friends and come join in this crazy-fun week dedicated to connecting family across the generations. We’ll be sharing our favorite moments and insights in the coming weeks, but nothing can match the thrill of being there. Check it out:
