MHSA Meeting - Preserving Our Family Stories

Saturday, September 25, 2004 - First Mennonite Church (Website with Map), 2600 Richmond Road SW, Calgary

Are there skeletons in your closet? Come to a free, one-day workshop on how to capture and share the stories of your family. Learn techniques about locating information, recording oral histories, preserving photographs and heirlooms, and more.

Proceedings We hope to make the papers available as a slim coil-bound collection before Christmas. Watch for announcements here, in our newsletter, and on the MHSA e-mailing list.
