As Brenda and I continued our family research we stumbled upon a board that connected us to the research work of family members we had yet to meet. This particlur path led to some of the most interesting and engaging stories I had ever read regarding family.
Having taken this unforgettable journey across oceans and the states in just a few minutes online I was even more elated to discover who was responsible for asking just the right questions on this board that led to this rich treasure find. It was my own son!
That's the beauty of doing research online. It always takes you full circle. Around the world. Over seas. From state to state and back. And when you come to journeys end you are all the better for it.
That said, I invite all family reunion planners to pull up a chair, sit down with you favorite beverage and take your own personal journey into the past. Open the drawers of data, letters, video and newsclips that await you. Enter thru digital doors and find fascinating bits of history you never knew you could access.
What kinds of genealogy and history presentations work best? How can kids get more involved and what presentation techniques will keep them intrigued? Start online. Look over photos of family members and the places they lived. Visit a cemetary grave site. Tour a home and the homestead town as it was, compared to what it is now. Look at the world from the eyes of the ancestors. Best of all bring it all to life with vivid sharp clear color with the help of the cinema and theater.
How can we learn more about our ancestors hopes, dreams and aspirations and how can we discover more about oourselves in the process? You'll quickly find out once you've started reading my Family Reunion Planning Keepsake Book and using the companion software - Fimark's award winning Family Reunion Planner.

Happy Family Reunion Planning!
