FRIDAY, AUGUST 13, 2010
9:30-11:30 Pre-conference Workshops (Additional $20 fee per workshop)
Workshop 1: If You Don’t Tell the Story, Who Will? With Marilyn Collins. The search for family ancestors is the primary focus of genealogists. This workshop comes into play after the charts are complete. Learn how to write the story of a family, town, church, people, or events.
Workshop 2: When the Records Didn’t’ Get It Right , with Mary Celeste, MLS. If your family consists of names, dates, and places only, you may have missed out on really getting to know some interesting characters. In this workshop you will be inspired to roll up your sleeves, dust off your resources, call your cousins, and get back into the research mode. This is an interactive program.
