Past Family History Workshop

Thursday, 06/16/2016, 6:30pm – 9:00pm
Cambridge Historical Society, Family History Workshop, with Avery Williamson

Are you the keeper of your family’s history – or perhaps of other families’ – and looking to go beyond census records and the family tree?

Have you hit roadblocks that call for new tools or ways of thinking about your project?

Join artist and family historian Avery Williamson for a workshop about doing family history research and making what you find meaningful.

The workshop will include a viewing of the Historical Society’s exhibition featuring Williamson’s artwork alongside objects from the collections of both the Hooper Lee Nichols house and the 2016 Cambridge History Fellows.

By the end of the evening you will have new, creative ways to think about doing your research and turning your project into compelling media, and a thoughtful group of fellow researchers with whom you can discuss your practice. And just in time for Father’s Day, Juneteenth, and any other family gatherings you might be attending this summer.

Member – $5.00
