SHOW & TELL PROGRAM
A Show & Tell event featuring stories, artifacts, photos, papers, postcards, quilts, diaries, and sundry bits of memorabilia, unearthed by the meticulous efforts of several of our Society Members over the past 50 or so years.
Did you ever wonder what your ancestors ate for supper and how they prepared their food? How about what roads they traveled or seas they sailed to make it to this promised land with a mere $14 in their pocket? Have you ever seen a real rifle or drum from a Civil War veteran, or read his diary? We’ll have that for you as well. How about reading through the stories from eight generations of one Colorado family or hearing the story of a WWII veteran who survived the bombing of Pearl Harbor? And who wouldn’t be interested in finding old letters or postcards written to or from one’s ancestors, or possibly a newspaper clipping chronicling some event in a distant family member’s life?
As a tip of the hat to all of you who have been working long, lonely hours trying to discover as much information as you can find in order to better understand your distant and not so distant ancestors from the past, and therefore, a bit more about yourselves as well, we have decided to let people show us the fruits of their labors. Our presenters will be manning their tables after the potluck and business portion of the General Meeting, and you will be free to browse the displays and talk with the members about their findings. Maybe you will learn more about a part of history that you didn’t know before. Perhaps you will see some objects you have never seen before. But better yet, maybe you will be inspired to try to look just a little bit harder for that one item of interest that has alluded you to this point in hope that it will be discovered on your next journey along your genealogical path. Whatever the case, please join us for an afternoon of discovery that will celebrate the fruits of the genealogist’s labor.
