Kansas City, (MO)…The National Archives at Kansas City will be offering a free workshop, Preserving Family Memories, to the public on Friday, December 9th at 10:00 a.m.
This workshop is a quick overview of three vital components in family history: oral interviews, physical preservation, and reading old script. Oral interviews coupled with family papers and heirlooms provide the foundation for any genealogist’s family history research. Beginning at home with these pieces left by previous generations will launch you into other areas of research. Learn how to protect and preserve these precious assets for many generations to come. This will be presented by Lori Cox-Paul, Director of Archival Operations, and Jennifer Audsley Moore, Archives Technician and Volunteer Coordinator.
To make a reservation for this free event, please call 816-268-8000 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
