10/20/2019 to 10/20/2019

6301 Montrose Rd, Rockville, MD 20852

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Washington (JGSGW) will present “Telling Your Story, Leaving a Legacy”, taking place at B’nai Israel Congregation, in Rockville, Maryland on October 20, 2019, at 1:30 PM. Explore the idea of preserving your own story. Historians and families used to have letters and diaries to construct their family history. In a world gone digital, how will we pass on our experiences and life lessons? Come hear Anne Bolen, owner of an oral history recording service, explain why your story matters and how to make sure it isn’t lost. The presentation will include a fun exercise to demonstrate how to tell your story. With over 25 years in the museum and archives field, Anne Bolen is passionate about preserving our national and community stories. Her work towards understanding the personal side of history and collecting interviews for schools and museums inspired her to found her own company, Anne B. History, which records memories and experiences for organizations, individuals, and their families.
