Family History Collections
When I’m tucked inside on these chilly winter days, I am using my time to access my growing collection of family history items. Whether you have a plethora of paper goods, jewelry, books, or furniture, you may want to think about where all these treasures will go. Let’s look at resources to help you.

With the anniversary of Pearl Harbor this past week, we pause to remember those who served during this time in history. Many of us have ancestors and relatives who served during World War II. Let’s look at resources that can help us find more information.
This week’s blog is brief. I’m always looking for opportunities to learn more about family history and genealogy. If you haven’t received an email yet, I wanted to let you know you are able to sign up for RootsTech 2022! Like last year the event is free and virtual and you can register and sign in using your FamilySearch account information. RootsTech 2022 is March 3-5, 2022.
I don’t have any affiliation with the event but have found it extremely valuable. There are so many sessions that you can access during and after those three days. This is a great opportunity to learn from experts in the industry.
You can watch a video here: RootsTech 2022 • FamilySearch. While we have a few months before RootsTech, the way this year has flown, March will be here before we know it. And in the meantime, you can start learning by catching up on sessions from last year’s event Happy Learning!
