Sunday night I taught a class at my local Family History Center, Finding “Hidden” Records on FamilySearch.
I covered everything from this blog post and then some. I really love teaching. So it was a great time for me. And bonus, my students were pretty happy too.
Well, today I get to teach a group of 10 and 11-year-old girls. I have ten minutes. Ten minutes is not a lot of time. You really can’t cover a lot in ten minutes. So I am going for quality. We are going to talk about preserving memories. I’ll tell them a story or two. I’ll show them how to add a photo and an audio recording to FamilySearch from the app. Then I am going to challenge them to go home and add 3 photos and 3 audio recordings to FamilySearch using the FS app.
I will send them home with this handout:
I hope at least one of those little girls will feel a nudge towards her ancestors.
Wish me luck!
ps – Those girls? They are members of my church. We have a program called Activity Days that is for 8-12 year old girls. They meet twice each month and learn new things, complete service projects, or participate in some sort of activity. I was asked to help out this time. If you are an Activity Days Leader and come across this post, please feel free to use my handout.
pps – If you are interested in my overly detailed handout from my Finding “Hidden” Records on FamilySearch class, send me an email and I’ll happily share. Email address on sidebar.
