Share Your Ancestor’s Story
Thursday, June 16 from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Our June training session will be a chance for members to share a story and research about an ancestor whose past was intriguing, criminal, or unusual.
Have you discovered a famous or infamous ancestor in your family? Or perhaps you’ve found an offbeat ancestor or someone with an unusual occupation. Have you been able to prove or disprove a family myth through your research? We’d love to hear about your discoveries!
Have you discovered that your ancestor was a cowboy, a madam (ahem…),or a criminal? Perhaps they were murdered? Or perhaps you’ve found an ancestor who was an inventor, a tycoon, a member of royalty, or a hero. We’ve all found an ancestor who’s surprised us!
Short (5 minutes or so) presentations about your ancestor and research will be combined with others from WMGS members for discussion and Q & A.
This will be an informal event, so it isn’t necessary to provide tons of background information, research documentation, or other material about your ancestor or your research. We’re planning for this event to be fun and interactive, so we hope you’ll consider telling us about your ancestor!
If you’d like to share photos, scanned documents, or other digital material along with your story, you can send the items to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll have them ready to share on the screen.
