Trees and Stories on Treelines.com
You have intriguing stories about your favorite ancestors stored in your file drawers, your computer, and inside your head. Now you want to share them with your family and friends, but their eyes glaze over when you start to talk. Tammy will show you how to fix that, both by introducing Treelines.com and its collaborative family story-telling platform, as well as presenting techniques even the tech-wary can use to make their stories more entertaining in any medium.

Tammy Hepps is a nationally-recognized genealogy speaker, teacher, and writer. As the creator of Treelines.com, she won the RootsTech Developer Challenge. Her experience combines fourteen years managing web technology for digital media companies in New York City with more than two decades researching her family tree. She received her AB in Computer Science from Harvard and serves on the boards of the Philadelphia Jewish Archive Center and JewishGen.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD). Refreshments will be available.

News Tidbits

JGS Maryland has been reconstituted!
JGSMD had its initial meeting on Sunday August 18, 2013 to see if there was interest in the group's reconstituting. The turnout was overwhelming, with 31 people attending with only a few days' notice. Look forward to new programming over the next year!
