LODI – Ann Kerr, genealogist and photo consultant, will deliver a multi-media presentation with ideas on developing and preserving family history on Monday, March 8, at the San Joaquin County Historical Museum in Micke Grove Park south of Lodi.

The program will begin at 9 a.m. in the museum’s multi-purpose room. The public is encouraged to attend. After the program and refreshments, a business meeting will follow.

Kerr will talk about the Internet as a genealogy tool, family history video, digital scrapbookings and using web albums for sharing information. Kerr, who earned bachelor’s degrees in English and journalism from Brigham Young University, wrote a monthly column on family history for the Lodi News-Sentinel for seven years and has been a photo consultant with the Lodi Family History Center for eight years.

The Docent Council is a volunteer group with about 90 members in the San Joaquin County Historical Society & Museum and assists in the museum’s educational programs and activities.
