April Program: Planting Your Tree for the Next Generation!


Speaker Ellen Shindelman Kowitt (pictured above) will talk about “Planting Your Tree for the Next Generation” and how to share family history research. Genealogists are often very good at finding documents and people to create a family tree. But, ensuring that hard earned research and materials are properly preserved and distributed to extended family, to libraries and archives, or online requires thought, preparation and tools. Together, we’ll explore practical and creative ways to share research in print, online, audio, video, and with arts and crafts. Plan to share, and tell us about how you have creatively shared your genealogy.

Ellen received her bachelors degrees in political science and business administration from Alfred University. She served as an intern at the U.S. Congress. She is currently a marketing professional, genealogy speaker and instructor, past column and newsletter writer for several publications, and past president at the Jewish Genealogical Society of Colorado.

If members can’t attend this program, our society records the program for viewing during the following week. This is a great benefit for our members who can’t attend, are located elsewhere or want to see the program again. Members receive an email with the instructions to access the video for one week.

Public is welcome to attend and encouraged to join our society. Please bring a relative or friend interested in genealogy.
