3A Keeping a Timeline... and Why
Syllabus: 2016/3A_Adding_Timelines_familyhistoryfair.pdf

Placing your ancestor in the context of history is a means of getting to know them at a very human level. The use of a timeline, to place events in chronological order, will assist the researcher in learning more about the ancestors as well as additional records that may be available to increase familiarity with family members.

4A Planning and Organizing a Successful Family Reunion
Syllabus: 2016/4A_Planning_Your_Family_Reunion_Syllabus.pdf

Planning and organizing a family reunion can be a very rewarding experience, but in order to have a successful event, considerable thought and planning is involved. Much like planning a wedding, time is involved. However, with a plan and a schedule, by the time the date of the reunion arrives, all you will have to do is sit back and enjoy the festivities.
