The Program:
Beyond the Family Tree – Bringing Your Family Stories to Life

When you bring out your family tree and genealogy reports at a family gathering, do your relatives’ eyes glaze over? Are you overwhelmed with data after so many years of research and wonder how to tell your family’s story without getting lost in the details? Have you done so much research that you don’t even know where to start in telling your family’s tale? If so, this program is for you. Marion Werle will discuss approaches to adding interest to your family stories. She will cover what to write about, where to begin and how to keep from being overwhelmed. She will discuss various techniques, how to add background and context to make your ancestor come alive and using timelines to help tell your story. She will also discuss the importance of sharing your own life history.

Speaker: Marion Werle, began her family history research over 17 years ago, researching family from Lithuania, Latvia and Belarus. She is on the board of JGSCV, is a past president of the Latvia SIG and has also been on the board of JGSLA.  She is a member of the SCGS Writers Group and has attended a number of lectures on family history writing, and has several writing projects in progress. She has master’s degrees in both European History and Library Science from UCLA.

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County is dedicated to sharing genealogical information, techniques and research tools with anyone interested in Jewish genealogy and family history.

There is no charge to attend the meeting.  Anyone may join JGSCV. Annual dues are $25 for an individual and $30 for a family.  Dues paid good through December 2013.
