In Response To: Re: Presenting research at the reunion ()
If it is not a lot of trouble, I would absolutely LOVE to have a copy of your outline! I writing the family story, I'm finding that one branch of the family never took pictures, and the other two, stayed in front of the camera! So we have pictures of 2 of the brothers (my great grandfather and his brother) and others in that generation. They don't even have a picture of their grandparents. We have at least a hundred, as well as a picture of our common great great grandmother, which they'd never seen before. I'm now in touch with most of my second cousins and one family of my third cousins and other 'cousins' whose ancestors came from the same plantation as mine did. I plan to have a reunion in the next year or so (2010 or 2011), so I am haunting this forum to get ideas, and learn about the pitfalls!
Anyway, I am the doer of the large family, so if it is to get done, I have to organize it, and as you mentioned, I am also the one collecting all the death certificates, haunting the internet (and cemeteries!). Your out line would save me from 'reinventing the wheel'. One of my second cousins once removed, is a popular children's author, I will be sharing information with her to see what she can do with it as well!
