Description

Your family story is important – and not just to you! History Professor Dr. Bill Woodward and his wife Tina have researched and written her family’s story. They will draw on their research to share tips on how to get started on your own history, what to ask your grandparents, what to save, how to tap external sources, and approaches to narrating how generations of a family can not only connect you to your roots but also illustrate broader history. Her family records go back to pioneering in the mid-19th century Midwest, and extend to her father’s World War II separation from his family when he came to Seattle to work for Boeing: you will learn bits of that story – with historic images – as an encouragement to try it yourself. *Note, this session and Doing Family History (I) have complementary content. Feel free to attend one or both, in any order.
