Does anyone have a sample introduction to genealogy presentation or seen a good one they could share?
I have been asked by my local library to give a basic introduction to genealogy presentation. The community is predominately Jewish but I will have to keep it non sectarian to some extent. The organizers tried a presentation last year and they said it did not go over as well maybe because the person was too detailed. The audience will be older and less computer savvy.
I have some ideas starting off with a basic discussion of why and what you can hope to find and then how to get started at the most basic levels and then a few next steps and examples. Of course I will mention the JewishGen FAQ -- it is how I got started all those years ago.
If anyone has a presentation they want to share (please send privately) or some ideas/tips love to hear from this experienced audience.
Also thinking about how to describe and title the program to draw in the biggest audience.
