“What Handwriting Can Tell You About Your Ancestors”
Presented by Leslie Nye
Have you a letter , a handwritten will , a to-do list, or any handwritten document written by an ancestor you wish you could have met and learned about? You never met your grandmother, and you’ve heard conflicting stories about her. Wouldn’t you love to learn more about her than what is in the census, etc?
Grapho-analysis is the study of the individual strokes of handwriting in order to determine the personality and character of the writer. Leslie Nye will analyze the handwriting of several famous people among others. This will help the audience learn how they can decipher their own ancestors’ handwriting, and thus, character.
Leslie was recognized with the highest award of the International Grapho-analysis Society, Grapho-analyst of the Year in 2006. In the past 25 years she has completed hundreds of grapho-analysis reports for businesses and private clients.
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 May, due to our Annual Picnic, nor 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 or Annual Picnic; and in September, we have a workshop.
