Getting Done Your Family History Projects!

Stuck on the couch? Sitting through this stay-at-home situation is the perfect time to make some progress on all your family history projects. This may be the "Month of Sundays" you've been waiting for. Call it "Family History Friday" instead.

Join personal historian Cory Bretz for an interactive online workshop as he walks through a Q&A session about some of the ways you can efficiently use this stay-at-home time to make a dent in your family history projects. Get on with writing your memoir.

Topics we could be discussing include old photo digitization, film transfers, DNA, genealogy, family trees, life story family history films and videos, self-publishing books, interviewing, online storage, social media sharing, and even online family reunions!

Admission Free. Get your ticket on EventBrite and receive the webinar link. Once you've booked your ticket through EventBrite you'll receive an email 24 hours before the event with the Zoom link.

To participate, all you need is your computer, phone, or tablet connected to the internet.

Bring your questions and challenges around your family history projects!
