Where Are You From? Genealogy 101  Join Dustin Renwick (previous host of Archives are Magic FieldTrip) for an exploration into the stories of your own history. This FieldTrip will help you understand the basics of genealogy – the study of family lineages. We’ll walk through the best archival sources, the pitfalls of online research, and the power of personal interviews with family members, tall-tales included.

Get Sh*t Done in The Cave: Deep Work Remote Session  In this virtual workshop, you’ll learn the concept of Deep Work and how to get more done in less time. We’ll begin by talking about “flow,” the science of productivity, and all of the distractions that get in the way. Then, we’ll actually do a deep work sprint, where you’ll get more done in 20 minutes than you have in most entire mornings (I know, crazy, but you’ll see). And then we’ll leave you with clear takeaways about being more focused and productive, especially working from home.
