Preserve Your Ancestor's Legacy:  Write Their Life Story 

by Mike Karsen

In this unique presentation, Mike Karsen walks the audience through the process of preserving the memories of departed loved ones. Where genealogy meets family history, this presentation explores the elements of putting together an individual's life story. Framed against the backdrop of historical context, these elements begin with collecting the information and various formats and styles available to each author. These efforts result in written portraits of our ancestors that bring them back to life for future generations to know and cherish.

Mike Karsen, a professional speaker, is a member of the Association of Professional Genaalogists (APG), the Genealogical Speakers Guild (GSG), and is Past President of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois. He has presented over 300 talks on genealogy topics locally, nationally and internationally including Newberry Library and Sports Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership in Chicago. Mike is the author of "Guide to Jewish Genealogy in Chicagoland" and has published articles on genealogy.
