May is Personal History Awareness Month. Do you know how your grandparents met? What was your father’s first paying job? Is there a photo from your childhood that perfectly captures the relationship between you and your siblings? Do your own children know where you were born?

Every family has stories, traditions, and images that deserve to be cherished in the present and preserved for future generations.

On May 5th, join personal historians Leslie Wittman (Stories with a Heart Video Productions) and Nancy Shohet West (Concord River Publishing), as well as photo organizer Philip Griffith (PSG Photo Solutions), to explore how to capture your family’s history through a written memoir, a personalized video documentary, or a beautifully compiled photo book.

Time: Monday, May 5th, 7:00PM
Location: Bedford Public Library Meeting Room
