As the family historian, you have amassed information and records that one day will pass to the next family historian. How do you share your findings with others? How you engage young family members involved with all your hard research may be another story. Education staff members Missy McNatt and Dorothy Dougherty will demonstrate fun and engaging ways to connect your research to family members, including your grandchildren. This lecture will highlight activities related to our most popular genealogy records, such as immigrant ship arrivals, U.S. census records, naturalization records, military and pension files. The presenters will also demonstrate new ways to share your research finds in the social media world, using social media formats.
