Tackling Family History Projects
We have boxes of family stuff lurking around in closets and attics. Photos, documents, objects...they all tell stories about our family. But somehow, organizing that box and telling those stories remains elusive. Join speaker Clémence Scouten, founder of Memoirs & More, to learn how to finally tackle family history projects. From archiving to genealogy to storytelling, Clémence will walk through different kinds of family history projects to show you how to take each one head on!
As far as Clémence is concerned, there is no better project than a family history project. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania with a B.A. in English, and then receiving an M.A. in English from the Sorbonne in Paris, she worked in corporate settings for fifteen years in Boston. But something was missing… She started her business to help people curate and preserve their family history materials. Whether the end product is a memoir, family history book, or an archived collection, she helps families identify what is most important to them and deliver full service solutions.
