Our December 5 meeting will showcase unusual sources of genealogical information provided by our members. Join us at Anne Arundel Community College, Florestano Building, Room 218 as AAGS members show us their unusual family artifacts and objects, and tell us what they learned from them about their ancestors.
The AAGS Program Committee would like to invite you to be part of our December program!
We are asking members to bring an object that provided information about a family member. We're looking for objects that, at first glance, might not be thought of as something that could provide family information. It's a chance for you to be creative; take a look at items that were passed along in your family, and identify one that "speaks" to you about a family member. Members who bring objects to the meeting are asked to prepare a 2-3 minute presentation that will tell the story of their object and the family information that it provided.
If you would like to participate, please complete the attached form and send it to me by email or snail mail by November 22. The form asks for your name, contact information, and a short description of the object you will bring to the meeting. It provides some examples of objects that board members brought to the meeting last December, when we did a trial run to determine if members liked this sort of a program. And they did! You may complete a form for more than one object. Depending on the number of submissions, we may have to limit the number of objects that each member will present. Please contact me if you have any questions - email@example.com.
