Keys to Sharing Family History Especially with Children
Tuesday, April 20
Keys to Sharing Family History Especially with Children  (Meeting)
7:00 pm
Online, Kirtland Family History Center, Monthly Webinar
Webinar presenter: Sunny Morton
Your Most Powerful Legacy is Your Story.  One of the most powerful and unique legacies you can leave behind is the story of who you are and where you came from.  People – especially children – are more resilient when they know stories about their roots. Many family history buffs express a deeper sense of identity, purpose, and connectedness because they can define stronger links between themselves and the past. I’ll talk about why this is so and leave you with strategies for starting to reconstruct and share your heritage. The webinar includes inspiring, get-started-now resources to trace your heritage, ignite a passion for Family History research, and then share what you learn with those you love! .   Kirtland Family History Center     www.kirtlandfamilyhistory.com     info@KirtlandFamilyHistory.com

The Cultural Phenomenon of Home DNA Testing
Saturday, May 1
The Cultural Phenomenon of Home DNA Testing  (Special Event)
10:30 am to 12:30 pm
Online Special Event of Akron-Summit County Public Library
Presented by author and journalist, Libby Copeland.
This presentation will explore the extraordinary cultural sensation of home DNA testing, which is redefining family history. It will draw on Libby Copeland's years of research for her latest book, The Lost Family: How DNA Testing is Upending Who We Are (Abrams 2020), which The Wall Street Journal calls "a fascinating account of lives dramatically affected by genetic sleuthing." With more than 35 million people having been tested, a tipping point has been reached. Virtually all Americans are affected whether they have been tested or not, and millions have been impacted by significant revelations in their immediate families.
