Using Timelines & Chronologies presented by Janet Camarata. Genealogists use a variety of methods to better understand their ancestors. One method is the use of timelines and/or chronologies to summarize a person's life, demonstrate how lives interconnect, point out problems and areas for further research, and help in writing a memoir, family history or obituary. The presentation is an example of the method applied to the Farthing-Fallis family.
Out of The Attic - Using Memorabilia To Help Tell Your Story (2.5Mb) Presented by Lou Daley. Most of us have some memorabilia from our families or we know someone in the family who does. Is it your g grandmother's thimble, your great- great- grandfathers Civil War sword, a favorite cook book from your mother, a trophy from some contest many years ago? No memorabilia? Where can you find it? What do you do with these items? What stories do they tell? Where can they lead you? How do they become part of the story you are trying to tell?
