CANCELLED - Document your family history
11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

This program has been cancelled. 

Do you have family stories in your head, but are unsure how to document them? Let us help you organize your family story! This isn’t an oral history class, but a way for you to organize your family stories that have been passed down to you or you have experienced.  We’ll get you started and give you the tools to continue to document your family history even after the class is over. This is a hands on workshop and we will have computers set up to help you get started. Registration required.
