Descendants' Day Events

Tuesday, 20 April 2021
7:00 - 8:30 pm
ONLINE EVENT: Click here to join the Zoom session

 Who doesn’t love a good story? The Descendants’ Day project is mining the rich vein of our archives for such stories, many that haven’t been told in a generation or more.

Join the neighbors in our virtual front room on this night of tales, and listen to some of the forgotten stories that have made up the rich loam of Jonestown life. 

Our storytellers come from the network of descendants, researchers, and tradition bearers excited about the history and future of Jonestown.

Are you one of them? Do you have a story to tell? If so, we are looking for you. Write to us at
