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 two of this series, attendees will learn how to use social and cultural histories to breathe life into the documents and facts uncovered in part 1 of the workshop series. Led by Holocaust Museum Houston Librarian, Jenna Norris, this session will introduce researchers to new ways of investigating family histories by region. Attendees are encouraged to narrow the focus of their research to one region.

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.
