OKLAHOMA CITY — Children who know their family history are often better fortified against the storms of life, according to a longtime educator scheduled to teach a “Genealogy in the Classroom” workshop.
Cheryl Murray, a third-grade teacher at Deer Creek Elementary School, will offer the workshop 9 a.m. April 26 during the Generations Genealogy Conference hosted by the Family History Center of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 5020 NW 63 St. in Oklahoma City. Everyone is welcome to attend the class, but educators are especially invited.
“Knowing who they are and where they come from gives children a foundation, and helps them with the battles of life as well as the joys,” Murray said. “It gives them inner strength.”
The genealogy conference is free but pre-registration is requested. The conference is 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and classes are offered for beginners as well as experienced genealogists on such topics as using social media for genealogical research; Italian, British, German and Native American records research; and genealogy in the Cloud.
