We all have favorite family stories, but how do you put them in a digital format? At a Saskatchewan Genealogical Society workshop, participants learned how to turn stories into a digital video that can be shared online.

The Saskatchewan Genealogical Society has been putting on the Preserving Your Family History: Digital Storytelling Workshop across the province for the past few weeks.

There is something comforting about home cooking—whether it be a favorite dinner or holiday cookie. Family recipes are passed down through generations, collected in worn and dog-eared books. The ‘Black Family Reunion Cookbook: Recipes and Food Memories,’ compiled by the National Council of Negro Women, is a treasure trove of these shared recipes. The recipes are coupled with life, laughter, family, history, and tradition. Have you ever heard of Emancipation Proclamation Breakfast Cake? What is your favorite family recipe? 
The Black Family Reunion Cookbook: Recipes and Food Memories, compiled by the National Council of Negro Women, is a treasure trove. It doesn’t just contain tempting dishes and poignant stories. The small (212-page) book is bursting with life and

An excellent starting point for Mexican research: Mexico National Census, 1930
With 12,913,257 records with images, this census is widely recognized as one of Mexico’s best planned and executed censuses, and it is also the only one accessible to the public. Due to under counting and some record loss, primarily for the Federal District, the 1930 census covers about 78 percent of the population. http://bit.ly/1TmwfCH

Search Indiana Marriages: a project indexed in partnership with the Indiana Genealogical Society. This collection includes records from the early Indiana Territory. Over half of those who came to Indiana directly from overseas were of German origin, with Irish a distant second. English, Scottish, Irish, and German descendants make up much of the present-day Indiana population.​ http://bit.ly/23YtTih

What are your favorite family heirlooms?
“In 1900, as a pre-teen girl in Naples, Italy, Lucia made the prayer beads out of dried olive pits, four years before she took a three-week journey across the Atlantic in steerage.”
Read one woman’s story of acquiring her grandmother’s rosary beads four decades after she had assumed they were stolen.
But the truth about what happened would have made my grandmother proud.
