Next Meeting: Wednesday, September 3, 2014

The Western Massachusetts Genealogy Society will hold their first meeting of the season on Wednesday, September 3, 2014 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the at the Agawam Senior Center, 954 Main Street, Agawam, Massachusetts.

Our speaker will be Mark A Wilmot, USMC Master Sargent (Ret) who has many impressive lifetime achievements. His program is titled “How Do I Frame My Life Story,” a night in which we should all learn about capturing important life details for our genealogy and family research.

Mark served as the Communications, Security and Avionics Chief for a Marine Expeditionary Unit aboard the USS Saipan. His conceptualization of future products continues today with the Emergescan [High-Definition walk-thru scanning for emergency rooms], and development of Lifetime Fitness Testing technology based on weight-lifting and common exercises, but most importantly, his vision of a new world sport called super scoreball (see www.superscoreball.org ).

Mark has written several books, including a guide to writing life stories, which is titled Sharing Your Life Story In The Digital Age, and From Vision To Reality. He has helped many people with their poetry and life story books, and currently provides writing, editing, and publishing services to individuals with specialized knowledge through his web site which is www.prandpictures.com
