Family History Projects & a Project Recipe for Holiday Gift Giving

Session held in person at the Oakland FamilySearch Center in Oakland California. While highlighting projects as gifts, it includes a variation of the “Two Ways” project and a recipe below. 👇

Last night I had the very special honor of presenting a talk at the Oakland FamilyHistory Center here in the Bay Area. Though we had a short time window to schedule it, Denise Plaskett, Rudy Wolf, and the FamilySearch Center team and volunteers made it a success. I'm so grateful. Rudy was also gracious enough to share this recording with all of you here in our Projectkin community.

In this event, I introduced the community and our approach and shared several examples you have presented or scheduled. To make it specific, I also included a Project Recipe for a variation on the "Two Ways" gift project I presented in September.

That project was a gift for my brother that combined a framed collage with a QR code that links to a digital version on Canva's whiteboard. Since it was a gift for my brother and his family, I talked about it but didn't give you access to the digital link. This time, I created a variation of that recipe exploring a related story.

Since this one is a little more of a demo can give you all access to the project on Canva, you’ll find it here: This should open in your browser without requiring an account or password.

In the video above, you'll see the framed print, and below are the relevant links and downloads.
