Sharing our Knowledge
Part 1: Why Would I Want to Join?
Sharing our Knowledge is a series of articles about the Historian Archives Project and how you can become involved.
Why would I want to join? Our son Jake, age 27, has posed that question to Lodge members when invited to join the Elks Lodge and similar organizations in North Dakota. Nobody has really provided an answer compelling to someone under age 30.
To be sure, there are reasons for joining fraternal or service organizations… but Jake hasn’t found any reasons sufficiently compelling in his case. Jake suggests that we, the Strong Family Association of America, have a similar question remaining unanswered.
Our answer is the same for everyone regardless of age – if you are interested in Strong family heritage or related genealogy, we are here for you!
The next question is, How do people find us? For the younger generation, that answer is “on the Internet.” How do I interact with, and become actively involved with, the SFAA? For the younger generation, the answer tends to be the same, “Via the Internet.”
Meanwhile, we are assimilating the Historian Archives left behind by Bob Strong, our former Historian. In Part 2, we show you the Archives project, and in the following articles we’ll see that we now have a stronger answer to Jake’s question for the younger generation.
Please share your ideas!
