[title]Alta. Genealogical Society-Edmonton Branch Postscripts Special Interest Group Meeting[desc]ONLINE. Wednesday, May 12, 2021, 7 – 8:30pm "By the Sweat of Their Brows: Researching to Discover the Work of Our Ancestors" presented by John Althouse. In this presentation, I will examine some sources that provide info about the work of our ancestors. The info acquired may add context & details to our family chronicles. "It was a dark & stormy night......" Snoopy as a writer started his works with the above line, a rather predictable choice. An effective teller of family stories needs a strong beginning. We ask all coming to the meeting to share an idea, an opening paragraph, or an opening from an article in Relatively Speaking or similar genealogy journal used to begin a story & capture the readers' interest. Keep it short 2 minutes or less is preferred. Looking for individuals who would be willing to present at future POSTSCRIPTS Meetings.
