Virtual History Happy Hour: The Family Historian
July 23 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The Family Historian: Capturing and Preserving the Stories of Things
So many of the things around us have stories embedded in them with the memories and personalities of those who made, used and cherished them. These stories are typically lost when the last person who knows the stories confuses it or passes away without capturing it orally or in writing. Simple tools can help take you beyond the names, and dates of your ancestors and into the stories of their lives as captured in their important possessions and knowledge they accumulated. Join us for a talk about how to document and share your family’s history!
Our Guest of Honor: Our guest speaker Dan Rael is Co-Founder of CatalogIt, a cloud-based collection management software for museums, galleries, and personal collections.
Our Virtual History Happy Hour series aims to bring a little bit of history home to you. Our guest speakers will preset a brief presentation, followed by an informal Q and A chat. Bring your own drink! Whether a glass of wine or a cup of tea, we look forward to (virtually) gathering with you and raising our glasses to history!
There is no charge for the event but you must register in advance. After registering you will receive an email with instructions for accessing the webinar.
