Know any friends or family interested in family history (genealogy). Have you given them a brochure to our September 25 "Harvest Your Family Tree" Seminar? Have YOU sent in your registration yet?
1. Our Archivist, Marina, would like to know if anyone has pictures from recent meetings, Hawthorn Park Appreciation Tea, cemetery gatherings, newspaper articles, etc. for our scrapbook. She can be reached at the "contact us" page on our website www.kdgs.ca. Please don't let a little surfing on our website deter you from sending us your photos.
2. Our raffle is coming together, so be ready in September as everyone will have to sell tickets. Who wouldn't want to win a laptop?
3. To hot outside for you - how about writing an article for our October newsletter (even a half page is good) or maybe a query. Deadline is September 15 and we know how fast the days are flying by. Send to Jennifer at betterhalf@shaw.ca
4. Cool photo project
Here is a photo site where anyone can "pin" their historical photos to their geographical location on the map. You can search by place and timeline. Right now there's only 15,000 photos but I imagine that this is going to become a very cool website once more people hear about it and add their own. Great for padding out the family history! - http://www.historypin.com/ (in partnership with Google).

5. “Connecting Energetically With Your Ancestors Through Genealogy”

You may know your ancestors’ names, but do you really know who they were? When every experience and feeling is recorded in our energy field, then what are the experiences and feelings of our ancestors that we carry?

Jan Fennell, Certified Healing Touch Practitioner and Genealogist, will help participants identify ancestors and connect with them energetically. What type of life did they lead? Where did they come from? What did they experience?

You do not need knowledge of energy work or genealogy to benefit from this workshop, only a wish to understand your family better.

When: Saturday, September 11th OR Monday, September 13th 10:00am-4:00pm at First United Church in Kelowna

Cost: $50 ($15 non-refundable) Refunds available up to September 4th

Space in these workshops is limited to create and ensure a positive environment for all participants
