Meeting Information

We’re All Experts Here

For our last meeting, we’ll be reflecting on the things we’ve learned from each other and how we can keep the momentum going.  Each of us are experts in our own way; what’s something you want to share with us that you’ve achieved, learned, or gotten excited about this year?  To wrap up this year of the NEFLIN Genealogy Interest Group meetings, we’ll be discussing something from our own expertise file, and hopefully sparking interest in something new for the upcoming year.

Interest Group Facilitator:  Mischa Johns

Mischa has a BA in Anthropology from the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida and an MA in Archaeology from the University of Sheffield in Sheffield, England.  She specializes in death and burial practices, and in public archaeology and history, and is currently the Putnam County Archivist working out of the headquarters library in Palatka, Florida.  Her areas of expertise are in archaeology, history, living history/reenactment, archives, genealogy, and any outreach or programming that has to do with bringing those subjects to the public of any age.  She also makes a mean PowerPoint presentation, and can teach you to make them as well so that your audience is entertained and engaged. She has a particular interest in pechakucha sessions – the speed dating of lectures, where you learn about a range of subjects from presenters in non-stop, three minute PowerPoint mini-presentations.

Update:  After some really awesome sessions and workshops at conferences I realized that my nerdy love for games is actually useful in the library! I’m also happy to give assistance when it comes to child, teen, adult, and family board game and Dungeons and Dragons game programs. I’m not sure how best to word it, but I do Ancient Board Game Nights (mostly adult/teen), Family Board Game Nights, D&D (ages 13+), and D&D Kids (ages 8-12) at our library and would be happy to add that to my listing if people would like help getting started with any of that.


Cost: NEFLIN Interest Groups are free of charge and are open to NEFLIN members only.  Registration is strongly encouraged.
