Guest Speaker: Gail Burk

In addition to researching and recording details about the lives of our ancestors, we genealogists are also the stewards of our own history, recording the details of our own lives for our descendants. This program will use a variety of prompts to help participants to draw a floor plan of their childhood home. This exercise will aid in triggering early memories so that we can then share those memories with our family.
