Time capsules are those collections of memorabilia, such as letters, photos, posters, coins, trinkets, newspapers, etc. that document a place, an organization, an event, or a family. However, the AGS Time Capsule wants your thoughts on what technology do you predict we will be using for genealogy in the next ten-years. These ideas will be sealed off and set aside for the next generation of family enthusiasts to open at the 2029 AGS Conference.

Secrets to connecting with the community and building a digital time capsule:
- Talk about the event on social media
- Reach out to a few key community people—photographers, local historians

And it’s a perfect way for our Society to reach out and engage the public with a fun event—like one of our conferences or GenFairs. It can help build new members, connections and supporters. Let’s give it a try!
