On May 14th I did a new presentation “Preserving Family History, Experiences, and Stories From the Pandemic.” for the Dakota County Historical Society (Minnesota) via Zoom. I have had inquiries about other organizations having me present this. The live presentation and accompanying handout is now available to genealogical societies, historical societies, archives, libraries, museums and other organizations. Please contact me for details and date availability. Payment can be made via Paypal or check. PaulaStuartWarren at gmail.com.
The description: Have you been documenting your own story during this time of the Covid pandemic? Do you need some tips on doing this? Do you need ideas on what to preserve and how to do it? What do you want to exist in the future to tell people about your experience of dealing with and memories of living through this pandemic? The ideas include those for adults, children, and even about your pets. Your experience may have included online family get-togethers, social media, signs in the window, journaling, blogging, photographs, parents learning new math, working from home, working on the front lines, and other things from daily life. We need to preserve with an eye towards what will be saved and will endure, versus not valued and tossed away. Comments from historical societies, archives, and other institution about preservation will be shared. The presentation and accompanying handout provide all this and more.
