I haven't been to lots of WFHG workshops, but I think I just got hooked! Today I attended the filing workshop hosted by Trish McDonald and Lorraine Cameron. The aim of the workshop was to help us organise and present our family history records in a way that makes it easy to share the information with others and identify gaps in the information we have.
And that's exactly what we did! The workshop was so well presented, super hands on and extremely productive. If you are lucky enough to be booked into one of the next filing workshops - come prepare with a three ring binder. At the workshop you will get the chance to buy the paperwork / documents that Trish is demonstrating with. I really recommend you just go with the flow and use what Trish is using for the day. If you want to change things around a bit when you get home - great, but the workshop flows better if we are all looking at the same documents.
Trish also supplies plastic pockets and dividers for a reasonable cost, but come with your own if you like.
I also want to comment on what a lovely group of people it was that got together :) I couldn't think of a nicer way to spend a Friday morning.

HI ! We are looking for people to write reviews and take pictures of our events. A great way to keep a running history of our family history group.
