Upcoming Eyno Family Reunions
Whenever possible, consider holding the family reunion in place where you have a strong Eyno family history, which provides opportunities to share stories and visit cemeteries or old home sites; you may even want to consider as a one-day activity, having each family take on the task of gathering information from the local courthouse, school district, public library, etc. -- this, of course, requires advance planning and assignment, but could generate considerable interest and results.
