Workshop: Repackaging Your Family Memories

Repackaging Your Family Memories – Murray Browne

By the time you reach a certain age you will have accumulated years of memories in the form of letters, photographs, VCR tapes, 8 mm film, discs, sound recordings, and tchotchkes. You box them up and shove them in your closet, garage, or attic where they seem to grow in the dark. But these memories are not going away. You can try to bury them, but do you really want to? After all, why did you save them in the first place?

Based on the speaker’s book, A Father’s Letters: Connecting Past to Present, this one-hour workshop provides strategies and insights to wrangle your family history. The price of the workshop includes a copy of the book.
