Secrets, Lies, and Families … Let’s Talk! with Julie Klam and Diane Cole
Wednesday, September 7, 2022 @ 7:00 pm EDT
The genealogy lessons from 'The Almost Legendary Morris Sisters: A True Story of Family Fiction' by Julie Klam... her title says it all: What's fact? What's fiction? How can we distinguish between the two? What can research reveal, and what secrets will remain unknown, however much we research? What lessons can we learn from disproving the mythical, fictional aspects of family history? How do we reconcile our family fictions with family realities?
Join JGS Cleveland for a discussion with author, Julie Klam, and book reviewer, Diane Cole, about the impact of surprises uncovered from the past. Other discussion topics will include advice for conducting interviews with family about their past, why family members try to hide their own history, and the consequences when the truths come out anyway.
Julie Klam and Diane Cole will use their own family stories to help us delve into our own genealogy journeys.
JGSC would like to develop a book club. Please contact Deborah Katz at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in participating.
