Title: In-laws and Outlaws: The Bylaws of Talking About The Family Skeletons
Date: Tuesday, November 10, 2015, 8:00 pm Central
Description: Sharing your family history can be an important part of the health of your family relationships but every family has a few sticking points. If you don't have some family skeletons, you just haven't done enough family history research yet. Every family has heroes and scoundrels. How do you pass down this information to the next generations in your family in a healthy, safe way that encourages strong connections to family and good coping skills? Sometimes it is all in the way you frame it. Here are some rules for making sure your family learns from the past and proceeds forward into the future in a healthy way.
