We will be very “active” thorughout the month of January.
Some of our activities will include:
- spitting (technically, that would be collecting a saliva sample for DNA testing)
- searching through graveyards near campus
- visiting local archives
- searching through boxes in the attic
- looking thorugh old microfilm records
- exploring census records
- reading family diaries
- talking with relatives
We will all be learning together and we will be teaching each other. We will use student “expertise” and interest to learn about historical events, genetics, religious movements, computer science, sociological concepts, and more. Whatever your major, you will be a welcome addition to the project.
