Genealogy and you (May 20)

This week’s X-Honours inspiration session is also prepared by two X-Honours’ students: Nynke Agnes Postma and Yan Siegers (me). We are going to talk about the workshop “Genealogy” that we are preparing for the NCHC2020 Conference in Dallas. We are also going to explain what genealogy exactly is and why it is important for you personally.

What is genealogy and why should I do it?

You have probably always wondered how big your family is and who your ancestors are. Some people you may know even have put together a whole family tree. This research is called genealogy and entails a lot of research in your history.

But why should you dive into the books? Why are people doing this? How are people doing this? And how can I do this myself? What stories have people uncovered while researching? These questions we will try to answer in the inspiration session upcoming Wednesday, on May 20th.

We will cast the session in Blackboard Collaborate, starting at 14.15 hrs. You can enter 15 minutes earlier for the High Tea. All students from NHL Stenden are welcome to join. Just click here to enter. Students that are subscribed to X-Honours are asked to join via the X-Honours’ Blackboard course.

We look forward to seeing you there!
