Bring Their Stories To Life

Gain the tools to build the story of your ancestors at the Northwest Genealogy Conference. This blog post is from conference volunteer Lisa Bartlow…

A civil war soldier, a widow making the journey from Germany to a new land with her seven children in the early 1700’s, an attorney, farmers (lots of farmers!), and a baker just to name a few. The folks on my tree came from all walks of life.

History comes alive as you explore your ancestors and the times in which they lived. Wars, migrations and family circumstances influenced what they did and where they did it.

There are many resources available to help you find out more about your family members. The speakers at this year’s SVGS Northwest Genealogy Conference will share tips and tools to start or expand your journey.

Discover the stories that go beyond the names and dates!
