Presentation: Evaluate Handwriting for Characteristics
Given by: Leslie Nye, professional Graphoanalyst
Ms. Nye will reveal personalities of ancestors we have evidence of but have never met. Using examples from our own members, we may learn some very interesting things while Ms. Nye shows us all how to evaluate handwriting for characteristics.
This is not handwriting analysis as you may have seen or experienced at Fairs. Graphoanalysis is the study of the individual strokes of handwriting. She will present an overview of the Science, how Graphoanalysis can be used in Genealogy to discover the personality and character of an ancestor based on his/her writing. This should be a very different type of meeting.
Ms. Nye has been a Certified Graphoanalyst since 1989. She is recognized as a noted speaker and trainer in the area of handwriting analysis for personal assessment, often with large corporations. In 2006 she was recognized with the highest award of the International Grapoanalysis Society (IGAS) - Graphoanalyst of the Year. She is also the Career Advisor for DeVry University in Sacramento.
About our Meetings:
The Genealogical Society General meetings are open to the public, with no admission fee. Feel free to drop in! Bring your friends as everyone is welcome. Come early and ask your burning genealogical questions of other members before the meeting.
We meet on the 4th Wednesday of every month, with a couple of exceptions. November's meeting is held on the 3rd Wednesday, due to Thanksgiving. There is no general meeting in December due to the holidays and our Winter Holiday Party.
Annually, several of our regularly scheduled meetings have a certain focus: April, we hold our Annual General Meeting and Elections (but there's usually a presentation also); May of each year we hold an Anniversary Celebration; and in October, we have a workshop.
