Carrying Our Story Forward, Sharing Family Ancestry - Mary Ann Horak  (Chapter Meetings)
2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Tallmadge Library, Community Room and Zoom
Lots of reasons why our family ancestry should be shared but, what is the best way to share? What to do with keepsakes, bibles, photos, videos, pedigree charts, family group sheets, birth, marriage and death records?  This presentation will take a look at different ways of sharing a little or a lot of the results of our family research. I will bring some examples of “my carrying it forward” projects to share. If you have already begun to “carry it forward” with your family, please feel free to bring examples to the meeting.
   We will meet in the Community room of the Tallmadge Library, 90 Community Road, Tallmadge,  The meeting will also be on Zoom.  The speaker is expected to be on Zoom. Links will be emailed to members.  Visitors may contact the chapter for a link.  The board meeting starts an hour earlier at 1:00 p.m. and is always open to members or visitors.
