Lifelong Learning

Every conversation needs a "starter"; sometimes that's a bit of news, sharing a personal experience, or showing baby photos!

Today's sharing has to do with a presentation I created at Google Docs for my "Beyond Basic Genealogy" class at the Center for Lifelong Learning.  I hope as we review together, some of the things we've discussed over the course of this session, we will stay on task with our family history reseach even after the course ends.

Here's the presentation, or at least I hope I can post it here! 

Be sure to click on "Present" in the upper right corner and it should come off as a slideshow!

Thoughts about this article:
  • Family Reunion Activity: Create, put together a family "time capsule" that can be retrieved in fifty to a hundred years?
  • What would you include (of all your "stuff") in a family history "time capsule" that would fit in this size container?  
 Other thoughts about this article and how it might pertain to "family history"?
