‘Investigating And Evaluating Family Artifacts’ To Be Focus Of Next Online Program Hosted By Genealogy Club
The Genealogy Club of Newtown will hold its next virtual meeting via Zoom on Wednesday, March 10, starting promptly at 7 pm.
All are invited to join club members for the program, “Grandma’s Treasure Chest: Investigating and Evaluating Family Artifacts,” to be presented by Pam Stone Eagleson.
Many people get started on their genealogy adventure when they inherit family artifacts and heirlooms. “Attic Archeology” is an integral part of genealogical research. Eagleson’s program examines ways to research and evaluate such family treasures as a pocket watch, a wedding gown, military uniforms, jewelry, photos, and musical instruments.
Eagleson is a researcher, writer, and educator conducting client research with an emphasis on New England, the mid-Atlantic, and the Midwest. She is a graduate of Northwestern University with a BA degree in history and sociology, University of Southern Maine with an MS ED, and Tufts University with a CAS in museum studies.
Certified since 2005 by the Board for Certification of Genealogists, Eagleson served six years on the boards of the Association of Professional Genealogists and the National Genealogical Society. She lectures on genealogy sources and problem solving, and is a member of several local, state, and regional historical and genealogical societies.
Genealogy Club members will receive an e-mail invitation to the event. Others who would like to see the presentation may register for the link via e-mail by sending their name, address, and phone number by March 8 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those planning to attend are asked to join the meeting at 6:45 so they can be admitted to the room before it begins.
