Do you have a box or several albums of old family pictures that you are not quite sure what to do with? Do you have letters and maybe other documents from your grandparents or great grandparents that are important to you to preserve? Are there family stories that need to be written down for your grandchildren? Or perhaps you just want to find out more about your ancestors and are not sure where or how to begin.
The UMRA Family History Interest Group started in October 2020. The idea is to learn how others have researched their family history and what they have done with the important pieces of their family history.
During 2022-2023 the UMRA Family History Interest Group will continue to meet by Zoom on Wednesdays from 10 to 11 a.m. Our sessions will be:
October 19, 2022: Family History Tourism—traveling to places our ancestors came from. Kevina and Lee Munnich Jr.
December 7, 2022: How to use your DNA analysis. John Anderson, Larry Rudnick, Craig Swan
February 15, 2023: Ways to engage family members in Family History. Jan Morlock, Donna Weispfenning
April 12, 2023: Current Family History—telling the stories of generations still living. Vicki Gaylord, Larry Rudnick
May 17, 2023: Family Stories. Jeanne Matross and then general Q and A with Lynn C. Anderson and Craig Swan
