Children can learn to draw family tree

POSTED: May 16, 2013 1:00 a.m.

Do your children know the maiden names of their grandmothers? Do your children know where their grandfathers were born?

If not, then you and your children may attend an “Ask Granny” seminar and create a personal family tree for free Wednesday, May 22, at the Crawford W. Long Museum in Jefferson. The seminar from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. is an educational outreach program featuring Judy Russell and Ann Reynolds of the Clarke-Oconee Genealogical Society. Both have experience encouraging people to record their own family history.

Families will be instructed on how to record on the provided ancestor charts. It will be a simple, easy way to document your family’s history on paper. No computers are required.

The free seminar is part of its Lunch and Learn series and will be upstairs in the museum with the program beginning at noon. Due to the workshop nature of the program, reservations are required. Space is limited to 20 attendees.

Those who attend may bring lunch or preorder a bag lunch for $5.

Call the museum at 706-367-5307 to order lunch or confirm attendance no later than Tuesday, May 21. Lunch may be prepaid with a credit card over the phone or stop by the museum at 28 College Street in Jefferson to pay with cash or check.
