“Can You Illustrate A Family History Without Family Photos?”

Laurie Castillo

Categories: IR, RT

Talk Abstract:
Yes! You can create family histories that are vibrant and appealing even when few family photos are available. All of us will need these techniques for ancestors who lived before the advent of photography in 1839. Fortunately, there are many other ways to illustrate the life and times of our ancestors. Be mindful of the ways they traveled, worshipped, gained an education, and made a living. Consider the places they lived, the climate and weather, their dress, ethnicity, talents, and skills. More than 21 ideas will be presented with accompanying resources. So many engaging items exist that can shed light on the lives of our ancestors and breathe life into the family history! You can do it!
