Upcoming Genealogy Garage Workshop 


 Saturday, October 17, 2015

Los Angeles Public Library (LAPL), Richard Riordan Central Library
630 W. 5th St., Los Angeles, CA 90071
History & Genealogy Dept., Lower Level 4
Write Your Own Story
Before you write about your ancestors, preserve your own personal history for the future as a template for your own obituary or eulogy! Without an insight into your own life and without a list of your accomplishments for which you wish to be remembered, who you were may be reduced to what is written by a stranger, a cousin you barely knew or a grandchild who only knew you as a senior citizen.

Workshop leader Rita Vega-Acevedo, current VP Programs & Education and past President of GSHA-SC has an absolute passion for “writing your own story.”

Hope to see you!

RSVP  the Central Library at 213-228-7000, ask for the History and Genealogy Department and tell them you are making a reservation for the Genealogy Garage workshop on [give the specific date]. Give them your name and an e-mail address or phone number so you can be notified if the workshop is unexpectedly cancelled.
