Writing Workshop Slated June 1
Do you have trouble putting your family history tales down on paper? To help you get started, SAGHS is offering a Writing Workshop, led by Lisa Mahler, Stalkin’ Kin Editor, and Susan Ball and slated June 1 from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at 14 East Harris. This workshop is offered for those interested in writing family stories – he real-life accounts of the important people, places, and events in their and their family’s lives. These stories may be recorded as letters, diary entries, short emembrances, character sketches, or even eulogies which we’ll practice writing in the workshop. Everyone will leave with a handful of good stories – in oral or written form – to share at family gatherings, as gifts or keepsakes, and for publication in the Stalkin’ Kin.

Family History Displays
Would you like to have a family history display of your own family? Last August, the Family History Displays at the Stephens Central Library garnered high praise and directed attention toward the accomplishments of SAGHS. Members of SAGHS will again put family history on display in August 2013. Volunteers are needed to create displays of their family history, a historic event affecting their family, historic events in the Concho Valley, histories of local towns, buildings, businesses ... anything which will make a visually appealing, historically interesting display.
Who do you think you are?
Start your discovery at the Genealogy Fair, August 27, 7:00 p.m. at the Community Room in the Stephens Central Library in San Angelo. With lots of exhibits, the Genealogy Fair promises exciting opportunities for interacting with a wide variety of historical and genealogical organizations and enthusiasts. Plus, SAGHS will be giving away door prizes! The Genealogy Fair is free and open to all who are interested in learning more about local history and family history. Plan now to attend - it will be great fun!
Would you like to help with this event? The Genealogy Fair Committee will be meeting soon to formulate plans.
