Finding and Preserving the Stories of Our Ancestors

Tuesday, February 21, 2017 - 6:30pm

Location: Community Room

While many of us yearn to hear stories of our ancestors, so many of them did not leave behind journals or memoirs. Fortunately, there are other resources we can check to discover more about what made our ancestors who they were. Census records, newspapers, military records and other sources may contain important details that give us perspectives into our ancestors' lives.  Led by, Kelsee Walker, this class will help you learn how to delve deep into these records that are of interest to your family history and find the details and stories that bring your ancestors to life. This class will additionally be held, Feb. 28 and March 7 in the Community Room.

Please see the Osher registration form, located at the Hospitality Desk or online at www.osher.ku.edu, for a complete listing of classes. For more information call UFM at (785) 539-8763.
