New Webinar Series for September! Coffee With My AncestorsAug 27, 2021
I'm so excited to announce a new series of webinars, Coffee With My Ancestors.
Do you ever wish you could sit down at the table with a cup of coffee or tea and speak with your ancestors who have passed? Maybe you already do this through meditation, journaling, exploring genealogy records, letters & diaries. One thing I've learned the last 25+ years is, there is not always a paper trail to definitely prove something about our ancestors. Sometimes we need to piece together a new puzzle & use our intuition & allow them to guide us.
There are so many steps we take as we research our family's genealogy & military history. We gather documents, talk with family members to hear stories, pour over letters and diaries, & enter the facts. Often we do not look beyond the paper trail facts. Anything not documented by paper is often considered unworthy or not true. Sometimes we will have a perspective on what we have gathered & entered that we may share with family members. Perhaps our perspective creates more questions & more research. Perspective being the key word here.
Within every document we read & every story we hear, there are more than two sides or perspectives. Have you ever asked two or more family members to tell you their memories of their grandmother? How many version did you get? Did one see grandma as a mean old woman while another version saw her as a woman who loved her grandchildren? Did another version land somewhere in the middle of who they thought grandma was? Not an angel but not a demon? If you have siblings & talk about major events in your lives, how many versions & perspectives would you hear?
Beyond perspective, when we really look at the layers of a story and the events which shaped our ancestor, we have to consider our own beliefs, patterns, and behaviors and how they might affect how we view the facts we discovered & our ancestor in question. Which facts & stories do we believe?
In this new series of webinars and classes, Coffee With My Ancestors invites you to look honestly at the different layers in your family's history. To explore the events that may have shaped who the ancestor became. You are invited to play with new tools to uncover what was one hidden. To look at what's inside us that colors how we viewed an ancestor. Are you ready to go on this journey? Explore what's coming up this fall.
