HHFCW-SEM: PLANNING YOUR SEMINAR OR WORKSHOP
by Fran Carter-Walker, 24 pages, 8.5" x 11 " Price ... $11.00
Every society recognizes that one of its prime objectives is in the area of education. People who consider doing their genealogy as a hobby or pastime need help, guidance and instruction. As any dedicated family researcher will tell you, "This hobby is not as easy as it looks at first sight." Searching for the ancestors to hang on your family tree requires dedication to research (in what? where? how?) and much examination of each piece and parcel of information gathered. Nothing is true until you can prove it is true. Therefore, the society dedicated to helping its members and its patrons needs to be concerned with helping people find the truth and then learn what to do with it in today's changing world.
This takes constant education. New methods, new techniques, new sources are becoming available each day, and a genealogist who is pursuing the correct lineage for his family needs to be aware of all of it. One of the best ways societies have found to help their members is to sponsor workshops and seminars. Now this sounds like work-- hard work-- and it is, but it is also great fun and very satisfying as the sponsors of these events will be quick to tell you. In this book, you will learn how to sponsor a seminar or workshop so that everyone enjoys the day enough to be enthusiastic about the one you would like to give both this year and in the future. Many hands make light work is a proverb never more true than in this endeavor.
