VGA’s 6th Birthday: “Finding Meaningful Stories in Your Family History” by Dai Davies

Thank you so much to Dai Davies for sharing this presentation to help VGA celebrate its 6th birthday!

As family historians, our greatest goal is to turn names and dates into rich stories that we can use to connect with our family and wider audiences. But does a family tree really have that much to say about something like a love of gardening? Yes! This video discusses the process of turning an interest, like gardening, into themes that we can then explore in the records.
