The Ford County Historical Society, in partnership with the Dodge City Convention & Visitors Bureau, will present "Researching Your Home and the People Who Lived There" at 2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2, at the Ford County Government Center lobby.

The presentation by Diana Staresinic-Deane is an official event of Dodge City Days.

The executive director of the Franklin County Historical Society and the Old Depot Museum in Ottawa, Staresinic-Deane will present about how participants can consider creative ways to study documents and assemble a meaningful narrative with information found through research, whether it's for an old home, a new business or a section of pastureland.

"New researchers will feel empowered to take their first researching steps," said Staresinic-Deane in a news release. "Researchers who have been stymied by a dead end might just find the bread crumbs they need to progress."

Part of the Humanities Kansas Movement of Ideas Speakers Bureau, the"Researching Your Home and the People Who Lived There" presentation and workshop are designed to share stories that inspire, spark conversations that inform, and generate insights that strengthen civic engagement.
