Mark Karsen will present:
 “Liven Up Your Family History with Images” 
 Family histories can be vehicles for “Time Travel” taking us back to the days when our grandparents and great-grandparents lived and raised their families. 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.
