Sifting Thru the Ashes – Saturday, August 10, 10:30 a.m.
Presented by the Winterset Public Library. This program is free and open to the public.
Writing about a tragic house fire that occurred 60 years ago can be a challenge. Attempting to research the event, knowing that none of the survivors are still alive, is an even bigger challenge. And when those deceased survivors are all relatives, look out!
Join author, genealogist, and storyteller Tim Ritter for a lively multimedia presentation about encountering brick walls in research, learning to sift through family legends in search of the truth, and taking chances that ultimately lead to incredible discoveries and connections to the past. You can learn more about Tim, his writing, and his adventures at http://www.timritter.net/ Tim will have copies of his books for sale and autographing following this presentation.
