05/11/2017: ""Researching Our History""


From May 13, 2017 to May 20, 2017: A free workshop for anyone with a story to tell. Join members of the Writing "Our History Project" (WOHP) and their partners, History Link (historylink.org) and the Orcas and San Juan island libraries and historical museums, for a workshop on the resources available for finding information about your favorite local history topic. The workshops are free to the public.

The workshop’s presenters are local WOHP writers who will discuss the tricks-of-the-trade that they use for finding information, including genealogy websites, and local, regional, state and national archives, maps and photographs.
Workshops Dates & Locations:


Orcas workshop is Saturday, May 13th 2017, 12:30-4:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall of the Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Eastsound.
San Juan Island workshop is Saturday, May 20th, 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. in the San Juan Island Library community meeting room in Friday Harbor.

WOHP is a county-wide group of local history writers, researchers and local history buffs who are documenting the yet untold stories of the San Juans. Together we use a variety of archives, local libraries and historical museums, and treasures passed down by island families to create essays and informal content published by our on-line partner www.historylink.org.

For more information about WOHP and to register for Researching Our History contact Sandy Strehlou sstrehlou@fridayharbor.org or 360.622.2037.
