CANCELED: The Story of You: Piecing Together Your Family History – Part 1

Saturday, Apr. 4, 2020 – Saturday, Apr. 4, 2020

10:30 AM – 12:30 PM

The Story of You

Join Holocaust Museum Houston (HMH) and the Greater Houston Jewish Genealogical Society (GHJGS) for a three-part series covering research and writing techniques to help craft the story of you.  Sessions will cover research methods; source documents; regional history; and turning all that information into a shareable story.  Create an engaging narrative that you can share with your family and friends.

In part one of this series, attendees will learn how to find and utilize the sources of information that document family histories. Led by the manager of Houston Public Library’s Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research, Susan Kaufman, this document based research session will be the foundation for the rest of the series. Attendees are encouraged to narrow the focus of their research to one person rather than searching for a whole family.

Register today for all three sessions or choose from individual sessions. Registration fees are $10 per session, $7 for HMH and GHJGS members.

After you register, your session leader will be reaching out via email with materials and information to help prepare for the workshop.
