3:30-5 PM Workshop - Next Generation of Vick History - This presentation will interest the general public since the tools for developing and publishing will be highlighted; Family TreeMaker; Roots Magic database; gedcom file that will allow importing of the database into any genealogy program or website that accepts that format.
What may be of general interest is: the basis of a new volume is underway - We need content from everyone! EG: stories, especially the ones about their relatives' quilts or jams or how they farmed, etc. Copies of family bible genealogy front pages would be so helpful. Also letters and maps. Newspaper articles. Announcements of births, deaths and marriages. We will be researching the Civil War period when photography came into its own. Already I’ve found references to our soldiers. Perhaps someone has a picture.
