A family history can contain phenomenal research with every event documented and sourced with precision, yet no one is interested in reading it. This is because histories need to have more than just names and dates: they need to be vehicles for “Time Travel,” taking us back to the days when our grandparents and great-grandparents lived and raised their families. Images bring them to life and make the story real. This presentation illustrates how to “liven up” your family history with images of people, places, and events that will make the reader keep flipping the pages to be drawn back in time. One session.
