June 20, 2023 @ 1:00 pm
If you are researching your family tree but haven’t shared it with your family in a way that sparks their interest, then you are only experiencing half of the joy of genealogy! And if your descendants don’t grasp the importance of their heritage, your hard work may tragically find its way to the city dump when you are gone. Don’t just collect your family history and store it away in binders and files! Learn how creative displays, crafts and digital content can capture the imagination of your non-historian friends and relatives, while honoring your ancestors. These projects are guaranteed to inspire your family to ask you to tell them more about the family tree! Lisa will emphasize which “ways” would be especially applicable to creating engagement at Family Reunions.
