Toni McKeen, chairman of Newtown Genealogy Club, will present a lecture entitled “Putting Flesh on the Bones of Your Ancestor” at the club’s next meeting. The program will be offered on Wednesday, November 13, at 7 pm, at C.H. Booth Library in Newtown.
“As soon as you tell someone that you are doing genealogy, the response is usually either “How far back do you go’ or ‘How many people do you have on your tree?’” said Ms McKeen. While both are interesting numbers, it is equally important to tell the life story of one individual with stories, documents, charts, and photos.
Ms Mckeen, who has over 2,000 hours of teaching experience, will take attendees through the process of recording another person’s life with easy, step-by-step directions, with the end result being a book that will be treasured by future generations.
All are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served.
The library is at 25 Main Street in Newtown. For additional information contact Bea Morgan at 203-304-1861 or Harlan Jessup at 203-426-3981.
