Dawn Brimhall

Description: Family history is more than pedigree charts and delicate records. It is about making connections between generations. A family history documentary is one way to provide a bridge for future generations to connect with the past. Anyone can create a meaningful family documentary that illustrates and enriches family stories and histories. This class will showcase different ways of creating family history documentaries along with ideas for how to engage a wide range of family members.


Dawn Retta Brimhall received a BA in History Teaching from Brigham Young University (2011) and a Masters in Education from the University of St. Thomas (2018). In 2020, she was named the Aldine Independent School District (ISD) Secondary Teacher of the Year in Houston, Texas. She currently serves as the Social Studies Instructional Specialist at Davis High School in Aldine ISD. She enjoys travel, photography, music, and family history.

The following class is scheduled after the main presentation (Start Time 11:10).

Class Presenter: There will only be Dawn’s presentation today 




Please note: Additional classes will be taught at the meeting location when meeting attendance justifies it.

The meetings are always open to the public and generally open with announcements that include what is happening in technology that effects family history work. A featured guest speaker will then make a one hour presentation on a topic of general interest relating to some aspect of technology and genealogy. Following the main presentation 3 or 4 classes are taught relating to technology and genealogy. These are at all levels from beginning to advanced and typically include classes about various genealogy programs and instruction for using the Internet for Family History work. The classes vary from month to month. There is a list of teachers and their specialties on the Teachers page. A few of the teachers have provided class outlines or summaries for some of their classes. For information about the meetings or about the Group, email us at uvtagginfo@gmail.com or call or text Gerhard Ruf at 801-602-5048.
