Title of Talk: Memoirs, Reflections and Essays; Adding life to Genealogy

Summary: Someday we will join our ancestors with our name and that of our spouse, plus our birth and death dates entered in the litany of our family tree. But we can go beyond that by giving colour and substance to our lives by relating our own earthly experiences in the form of recorded oral or written history. Join Mr. Rubio to see how his essays in his new book will relate life growing up on the Mexican border in the mid-20th century.
