Topic: Where were you when...? Sharing the story of your memories of important events in history.
Where were you when _____? We all remember where we were or what we were doing when something important happened in history. Have you written it down? As much as we love seeing stories from our ancestors, we should be cognizant of leaving those stories as well as our own for future generations. The possibilities are endless! Here are just some major dates in history for you to think about for “Where were you when.” Pick just one to share during the August Genealogy Chat.
