Join Kathy Nielsen as she demonstrates ways to share your family’s stories. Self-publish a book, create a video, interview a relative. Family stories may be lost in just three generations. Don’t let your family’s stories end up in the cardboard box in the garage or worse yet in the trash. Create a legacy for your family now. Pass on your stories and those of your ancestors. Kathy will inspire you to get started.
Kathy Nielsen is a reference librarian in the California History Room at the Monterey Public Library. Kathy earned a BA in history at the University of California, Berkeley and a MA in history at Hunter College, City University of New York. After teaching history to high school and middle school students for five years, Kathy returned to UC Berkeley and received a master’s degree in library science. She incorporates her skills as an historian, a storyteller, and a librarian with her love for travel and her search for her family’s history.
Doors open at 6:15 pm, the meeting starts at 7:00 pm. We’ll see you at the Family History Center, 1024 Noche Buena, Seaside, CA., left rear of building.
“I have more ancestors than all my ancestors!”
