Program Meeting

July 25 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Today’s topic: Beyond the Book: Ideas for Sharing Your Genealogy with Family Members,” presented by Jean Tempke

Do your family’s eyes glaze over when you talk about your genealogy research? Are you looking for a way to get family members interested? Does the thought of writing a book intimidate you?

Come learn ideas for sharing your genealogy that will catch your family’s attention. Some are appropriate for gifts since the holidays will be here sooner than you realize! Others are unique ways to display your family history and heirlooms at home, or to help you analyze a particular aspect of your genealogy. Some are appropriate for children, or for your next family reunion or Thanksgiving dinner.

Categories to be covered include charts, written documents, photo projects, ideas for kids, miscellaneous items, resources and brief tips.

The program will be part presentation, and part show and tell by audience members. Please bring any items you would like to share. If you have a bulky item, feel free to email a picture to Jean Tempke at by July 21 instead of bringing it to the meeting.
