To Know Family History, Show and Tell Family History

Join us via Zoom on February 21st

As amateur genealogists, we love to discover ancestors, find records, collect photos, and build our family tree. But how will your family history be told? How can your ensure all your hard work is passed down to future generations or perhaps given to a historical library or society? There are many possibilities.

One of them will be explored at our next general meeting on Tuesday, February 21st at 7:00 pm via Zoom.  Michele Bewley will present how she created a YouTube video to share her family history. Join us to learn how Michele used common tools and software to create short engaging videos for the next generation. And for those of you that have old photographs of unknown family members, Michele will tell us how she uncovered the clues hidden in family pictures to identify the mystery relatives.

Michele Bewley has been a member of RGS since 2020, first joining the RGS Writing Group. She began her genealogical research journey in 1992. She is a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution as well as a member of many local, national, and international genealogical societies. She is honored to be presenting to the RGS.
