Every family has a story and, at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 11, the Kansas Room, along with Ellis County Historical Society and Forsyth Library, will sponsor a Family History 101 program featuring Grady Birdsong.
Birdsong recently published his own family history, A Fortunate Passage. He not only will read from his book, but also give a presentation on how to research, write and publish a family history. There will be an opportunity for questions and answers followed by presentations from the historical society and Forsyth Library on some of the research materials and special artifacts available in their facilities. This should be a wonderful opportunity for anyone who is interested in writing and passing down their family story.
That's the Kansas Room at the Hays Public Library, 1205 Main Street.
