Liven Up Your Family History with Images

Mike Karsen

Family histories can contain phenomenal research with every event documented and sourced with precision but yet no one is interested in reading it.  Because they need to be more than just text, they need to be vehicles for "Time Travel" taking us back to the days when our grandparents and great-grandparents lived and raised their families. We need images to bring them to life. This presentation illustrates how to "liven up" your family history with images of people, places, and events that will make the reader keep flipping the pages to be drawn back in time.
