Genealogy Workshop


Chapter member Mary Penn, left, gives a genealogy workshop to Girl Scout Troop #30456. Mothers and their daughters are standing at the timeline at their birthdates. The girls read interviews from the oldest living relative; presented a keepsake of the family; and then cut out paper dolls to put along the timeline representing themselves, their mother, and their grandparents. Through the timeline the girls were taught how to look for gaps in birthdates and get a sense of how far back the Revolutionary War occurred. There was also a presentation and instruction on locating records and resources online.
