This is a two-part presentation that first includes interpreting old homestead documents, deed records, and plat maps to reveal the exact location of ancestral homesteads, farms, and residences – including GPS driving instruction. Part II, after a short break, reveals where Homestead certificates, early land-office logs, and complete homestead files are found and how to get them. Part I is 40-50 minutes, Part II is 20-30 minutes with a break in between.
Presented by Gary Clark.
Free and open to the public in Conference Rooms B & C in the Advanced Learning Library, 711 W. 2nd St, Wichita, KS
We all love discovering a fantastic tale of our family’s past. But how do we share these stories in engaging ways? This workshop provides the tools to enrich genealogical research. By incorporating story and memory, readers will feel what it was like to be in that moment. Exercises include developing characters, describing places and events of importance, and finding the heart of a story with the goal of creating an irresistible read.
