“New Ways to Share and Interest Others in Family History”
Categories: O , I
The presentation will try to achieve four goals: 1. Provide new ideas and fun ways to share family history; 2. Show ways to entice your kids, grandkids and relatives to want and ask for more; 3. Discuss innovative ideas that will get all ages involved in helping you; and 4. Offer a list of the best free resources and tools to do this. To interest the children he will discuss how to tell stories of you, your parents, and grandparents. For teenagers innovative, but not complicated, multimedia and Internet technology and the CLOUD help to dress up and present family history and he will consider a strategy to entice them into helping you. For the young family he’ll show how to change the attitude of “I’m too busy for family history; that’s for Grandma and Grandpa.” and show how to turn a scrapbook into a family history storybook. For the older generation you will learn some easy ways to share all of your family history in various formats: printed, PDF, photos, slideshows, and more. This will not be too technical, will be fun, and Marlo says to think of it as an “all you can eat” family history smorgasbord.
