It’s our sincere pleasure to be working with Reunions magazine, organizations involved with reunions and also all the family and friends, as you plan, get together and celebrate!”
In related news, Vivid-Pix was a bronze sponsor and exhibitor of RootsTech Connect, February 25–27, 2021. At the conference, the company unveiled Vivid-Pix Education for family “chief memory officers,” family historians as well as librarians.
To harness photography’s impact on family history, Vivid-Pix Education is a six-part series. Author/storyteller and genealogist Laura Hedgecock demonstrates how to share stories in bite-sized videos. The classes are available here: https://www.vivid-pix.com/education.html. The series starts with the Witness to History: Now and Then class.
Vivid-Pix is also providing education for librarians. The American Library Association estimates there are 116,867 libraries in the United States. However, very few universities offer a genealogy course path for librarians pursuing a Master of Library Science. As a result, working with experts in the field, Vivid-Pix created a 12-part series. The Genealogy Librarian Education series is located at https://www.vivid-pix.com/librarian.
