Panel
Remarkable Stories and Histories: Capturing the Stories of Family, Friends and Organizations

Monday, Nov 20, 2006

More Americans (and American companies) than ever are researching their roots, often making surprising discoveries — and sometimes they need the help of a professional writer. Please join IWOSC as a panel of history detectives get together to discuss the methods and marketplace for creating family and corporate histories. Learn about the methods and marketplace for family and corporate histories from oral historians, writers, and a genealogist who focus on our ancestry.

The Panel:

Moderator Richard Sherer, working on a family history book and has another waiting to be written. Sherer’s family since his great grandfather is also intertwined with the history of Los Angeles.

Jean Chapman Snow, teacher, freelance writer, genealogist and lecturer, facilitator of Writers’ Group<

Ellie Kahn, creator of Living Legacies.

Teresa Barnett, head of the UCLA Library’s Center for Oral History Research.

Laura Blumenthal, personal historian.
