Special Family History Fireside Features Genealogy Author Smolenyak
SUITLAND, MARYLAND -- All are invited to a special family history
(genealogy) fireside, "The Thin Veil", at the Suitland Maryland Stake
Center of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 5300 Auth
Road, Camp Springs, MD. on Sunday, October 29, 2000 at 7 p.m. . The
fireside features best-selling author, Megan Smolenyak.
Megan Smolenyak is the compiler of the new, best-selling book, "In
Search of Our Ancestors: 101 Stories of Serendipity and Connection in
Rediscovering Our Family History". Her book is the companion volume
to the new PBS/KBYU-TV series, "Ancestors", which is currently airing
on Maryland Public Television (MPT) and on PBS affiliates around the
country. Many of the people and their true accounts from the book are
featured in the "Ancestors" television series. Over recent months,
Smolenyak has appeared on the NBC "Today Show", Fox News Channel's
"Fox &Friends", and has been interviewed at length by National
Public Radio. She has also spoken around the country about her book.
In the fireside, Smolenyak will explore some of the inspirational
accounts of people who have made happy and unexpected discoveries as
they sought out their ancestors. In the process, many even seemed to
receive divine help.
Music at the fireside will be provided by coloratura soprano Sister
Barbara Lewis, who has performed at The Kennedy Center, with the
Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and internationally.
A brief reception with Megan Smolenyak and with Barbara Lewis follows
the fireside. The Suitland Maryland Stake Family History Center will
also open following the fireside and plans to feature its acquisition
of several new genealogical databases and programs.
All are invited to come and to be uplifted by the true accounts in
