The Life Stories Workshop will resume January 16 focusing on the skills needed to record family history using genealogical and historical sources. The use of several databases will be demonstrated, including www.ancestry.com and www.newspaperarchives.com. Other Houston experts in genealogical research will also be invited to make presentations and trips will be planned to local genealogical libraries. Those interested in learning more about these databases should bring a laptop to the sessions.
The Life Stories Workshop is held from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. preceding the Wednesday Night Alive! dinners in the third floor conference room. Those members engaged in writing projects will be welcomed and encouraged to share their stories. For more information contact Anna Fay Williams.
