Genealogy is more than building family tress with names, dates, and places . By looking at families at a 'systems' level, anyone can learn more about how relatives, through multiple generations, have an impact on one another. Understand the whys? and hows? of your life and that of your relatives. During this presentation, Ron will discuss individual-focused genealogy, genograms (family trees which display emotional relationships among relatives), and the basics of Family Systems Theory. Ron ends the talk by applying all of the above to the families involved with the Boston Marathon bombings.
