Program for July 20, 2015: "Power up your Family History!"
by Carolyn Leonard
Shirley Watts of Guthrie will show how to prepare a family history story and present the information in a way every one will enjoy. The public is invited to the program at Edmond Historical Museum on Monday July 20 at 6:30 pm.
The purpose of the Edmond Genealogical Society is to develop and maintain high standards for training and assisting members pertaining to genealogical and related historical research, and to collect and preserve material and historical data.
The meeting, which is free and open to the public, will begin at the Edmond Historical Museum, 431 S. Boulevard, Edmond, OK with a social time at 6:15 pm, program begins promptly at 6:30 pm.
"I will be showing the steps I take in creating my slides; the backgrounds I use and how I choose which one fits the slide the best, transferring pictures, re-doing pictures (cropping-changing shapes color, etc.) and generating a presentation to share with others," Mrs. Watts says.
Reacting like most of us at first, Mrs. Watts was not interested in genealogy when a cousin came to visit and brought a stack of books on the subject.
"Once I began uncovering the details of my ancestors, I was hooked!" she said. "At a Family Reunion in 2006, I gave a power point presentation and it was well received."
Mrs. Watts said she includes a picture of the individual, their name, date and place of birth and their final resting place on this earth. She has been a member of the Logan County Genealogical Society of Guthrie, for about thirteen years, serving as secretary and helping on various committees. She is also a member of the Samuel King DAR in Edmond, OK, and is celebrating 63 years of marriage with Clarence S. "Smitty" Watts.
She will be sharing her passion for genealogy and creating power point slides with the Edmond Genealogical Society.
FYI The Edmond Historical Museum is closed to visitors on Sundays and Mondays.
The EGS meets on the third Monday evening of each month, with speakers on subjects of interest to genealogists; membership is open to anyone interested in historical or genealogical research. For more info on EGS, www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~okegs/ or www.facebook.com/EdmondGenSoc
