I will be speaking about my book Zap The Grandma Gap: Connect With Your Family By Connecting Them To Their Family History in a hands on discussion workshop entitled: "Zap The Grandma Gap--Leave A Heritage Workshop."  We'll work together on coming up with specific ideas about how to leave a strong heritage to your children and grandchildren.  And my 14 year old son will be teaching "Get to Know Your Geezers" a how-to research class for youth 18 and under.  Stop by and see us at Family ChartMasters in the vendors hall too.  It is going to be a great party.  See you there.
