Library workshop to help families uncover their histories

February 18, 2014 by  

The upcoming Family Heirloom Arts Workshop is designed to assist people with uncovering their family history, while creating a fully-illustrated family heirloom booklet.

This promises a great way to share the family history of the past with those living in the future. Printing services have no doubt been used to promote this workshop to people in this community and throughout the region.

The instructor for this class is Lisa Kagan, who will offer participants a number of great tips on how to get started with uncovering hidden treasures about their family, how to conduct interviews, where to research information, how to write up the information they uncover, and various styles of illustration and design they can use to create their own personal book.

This class helps record family histories while honoring the family’s ancestors and deepening personal understanding about what role their family has played in their lives. Kagan is a writer, artist, and historian who leads workshops to assist people with discovering their past.

Advanced registration is required, but there is no charge to take part. The Family Heirloom Arts Workshop will take place on Thursday, February 20, starting at 6:30 pm at the Oregon City Public Library. For additional information or to register, please visit the library’s website or give it a call at 503-657-8269.
