Genealogy Workshop

CANCELED: The Story of You: Piecing Together Your Family History - Part 3

Join Holocaust Museum Houston (HMH) and the Greater Houston Jewish Genealogical Society (GHJGS) for a three-part series covering research and writing techniques to help craft the story of you.  Sessions will cover research methods; source documents; regional history; and turning all that information into a shareable story.  Create an engaging narrative that you can share with your family and friends.    

In part three of this series, attendees will learn how to weave the information from parts 1 and 2 of the workshop series into a shareable story. Led by family historian Stefani Elkort Twyford and memoirist Leah Lax, this session will help you to create an engaging story that brings your research to life. Attendees are encouraged to focus on a specific scene, essay, or introduction to complete in this workshop. 

Register today for all three sessions or choose from individual sessions. Registration fees are $10 per session, $7 for HMH and GHJGS members. 

After you register, your session leader will be reaching out via email with materials and information to help prepare for the workshop. 

Things to bring:

  • Laptops
  • Completed pedigree chart recommended
  • Family history documents (passenger lists, census, vital records, naturalizations, etc.)
  • Notebook and pencils for notes/story writing
  • Research collected in previous workshops
