Sharing Your Family Story with the Next Generarion, by Sharman Ramsey
Southern women see it as their responsibility to share the story of their family with the next generation. How then does one go about preserving those memories, traditions, the pictures and recipes for future generations? Author and historian Sharman Ramsey's answer was to create a series of family history cookbooks that she publishes through Create Space.
She will share the process through a Power Point Presentation at the April Genealogical Society Meeting.
