Join IGRA in our next webinar lecture with Marion Werle on March 21, 2021. Due to the difference between Daylight Savings Time in Israel and the US please note the special time for this webinar. The webinar will be at 7 pm Israel time, 1 pm EDT, noon in the Mid-West and 10 am PDT.

Marion's topic is: Beyond the Family Tree - Sharing Your Stories
When you bring out your family tree and genealogy reports at a family gathering, do your relatives' eyes glaze over? Are you overwhelmed with data after so many years of research and wonder how to tell your family's story without getting lost in the details? Have you done so much research that you don't even know where to start in writing your family's history? Marion will discuss approaches to deciding on a focus, structuring your story, and adding interest and context to writing about your family history.

Marion Werle began family history research 25 years ago, researching family from Lithuania, Latvia & Belarus, who settled in the US, Canada, UK and Israel. A retired IT professional with master's degrees in both European History and Library Science from UCLA, she has also completed the Boston University Certificate in Genealogical Research and the ProGen study group. Marian has written two unpublished family histories, The Skuders from Skud, about one of her family branches from Lithuania, and a history of her brother-in-law's family, The Wilsons of Washington County, PA - from Hopewell Township to Santa Ana, Calfornia. She teaches a writing class for JewishGen education and has an ongoing interest in applying general genealogical methodology standards to Jewish research.
