Capital District Genealogical Society
Unlocking the mystery in your family history using newspaper articles and hidden collections to find the facts in photos, heirlooms, and artifacts.
Unlock the story behind artifacts as Pamela Vittorio, associate professor at the New School in New York City, tracks and traces the origins of various family heirlooms — a clock, pocket watch, a locket with a mysterious photograph, some family photos, glass bottles and ephemera — to discover the stories behind them.
Find out how you can correlate newspaper articles and family stories to make the most of what’s in that box your grandma left behind. The truth may be hiding in plain sight. For more about the Society see:wwwcapitaldistrictgenealogicalsociety.org
Program starts at 1p.m.
