Valerie Elkins --The Magic of Storytelling
Do your families and friends love hearing your genealogy research stories? Or does bringing up the “G” word empty the room faster than a cat in a room full of rockers? Family history is really not only about finding another name to add to pedigree charts. It is also about binding our family’s hearts with the stories of their heritage. Stories full of love and loss, happiness and devastation, heroics, valor and even shame - stories that can provide strength and courage to present and future generations. Our Family History stories need to be told and told well! If our families are not interested in our family history – maybe we are not telling our stories right… every family has great stories waiting to be told. You are invited to attend this session to discover how to find the magic in your family history stories!
