Josh believes that “exploring connections … offers a unique and fulfilling experience, as we uncover the roles our ancestors played in the past.” In this one-day workshop, we will explore using resources to help find ancestors before 1830 as well as new tools and ideas in research that will help us connect with our past. Plus, we will learn how using maps can teach us about more than land boundaries. Finally, we will explore how to put it all together to tell our family story.
