Does it seem as if your family history is limited to a dry list of names, dates, and places? Would you like to learn how to enrich those bare facts with family stories and create more interesting reading? Then the upcoming Southern California Genealogical Society Lunch and Learn program on May 14, 2016 is for you!
The Program will include two lectures:
1:00 pm to 2:00 pm "Preserving History through Writing the Personal Narrative" by Elise Woodson. Ms. Woodson has served as the Education and Film curator for the California African American museum since 2009. Her presentation will cover the Mind Mapping method of pre-writing that will help to begin the process of personal storytelling.
2:15 pm to 3:15 pm "Expanding Facts into Family History Stories" by Dick Humphrey. Mr. Humphrey is a retired teacher and the leader of the popular SCGS Family Tree Maker User Group. He will be discussing various strategies for enhancing scanty data to create more compelling stories. Examples from his personal publications will cover childhood memories, holiday traditions, and major historical events.
Doors open at 12:00 noon. Bring a brown bag lunch and sit, chat, and share your genealogy stories with fellow family historians while you eat.
