An artificial limb, a very special chamber pot, and a World War II diary are among the heirlooms people have brought to the annual family history show and tell event at the Cloverdale Library.
The sixth annual show and tell for those researching their family’s story gets underway Saturday (Nov. 22), raising all sorts of intriguing possibilities.
People are invited to bring their own creations – such as scrap books, storyboards and digital collages – and artifacts belonging to an ancestor.
This year’s event features a home movie theme, so participants are welcome to bring along digitized home movies, slides and photos to share.
The event runs from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and it’s free to attend (donations welcome). Please note: participants will be limited to a maximum of 10 minutes talk time.
To register, visit the Cloverdale Library at 5742 176A Street, or call 604-598-7327 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
