The Paulin(e) Family Reunion: Taking Family Research to the Family
It all started with this mad idea to recreate a family picture taken in the early 1890s in Victoria, BC. The idea evolved to organizing a family reunion—who do you invite, how do you invite, what do you do besides pose for a picture? Gillian Leitch will discuss organizing the Paulin(e) reunion, held in July 2019, from the event planning, invitations, and publicity, to the actual reunion. Not only was the reunion a fun social gathering of relations (who were mostly strangers), it was the start of a new family community, sharing photos, stories and friendship. It also saw the creation of a Facebook page and a website (paulin.family.blog).
