Our guest speaker John Putnam will present What’s Your Story?
Most genealogists spend their time researching their ancestors lineage or stories while largely forgetting their own story to leave to future generations. What’s Your Story presents the case for preserving your own story and offers research suggestions to provide context for your story. His presentation will include ideas for getting started and a wide array of ideas to help you preserve your story. Genealogy is more than your pedigree. It is your story, so come prepared to discuss opportunities to write or record your story.
