Planning a Future for Your Family’s Past by Marian B. Wood
Thursday, December 9
Planning a Future for Your Family’s Past by Marian B. Wood  (General Meetings)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
A video conference meeting using Zoom. Registration required.
Ancestors' photos, stories, documents, and heirlooms are part of your family's past, and they deserve to be protected to share with future generations. Even if you have no obvious heirs for your genealogy collection, this presentation will offer ideas for paths forward. Learn about the PASS process for organizing and storing family history materials with today and tomorrow in mind; curating your collection to keep key items while finding suitable new homes for other items; writing a "genealogical will" to safeguard your collection for the future; and sharing your family's history now, before joining your ancestors.
 
Registration will open one month prior to the event.
