Family Stories Workshop: Creating Narratives from Family RecordsSunday, March 22, 1 pm Location: United Irish Cultural Center, St. Francis Room, 2700 45th Avenue @ Sloat Blvd., San Francisco, California Cost: $25/person
Sometimes all we have left of our ancestors is a photograph, a marriage record or a Mass card. Margaret gave a talk and taught a workshop on how she began without any records, stories or photographs and found enough information to recreate a family story and write a book, The McQueeneys: From Ireland to America.
Participants brought a family photograph or record. Margaret assisted them in using vital records and photographs to begin to tell their family stories and make their own books.
