The holidays can be a great time to interest your kids and grandkids in genealogy. Think about sharing a family recipe or a favorite family tall tale – like that story about Grandpa rolling a bowling ball down a church aisle! Need more ideas? Check out the book I just discovered – Caroline Levitt’s The Kids’ Family Tree Book. It’s a good introduction for fourth through sixth grade on how to do research in kid-friendly language.
Don’t know enough about your family history to have stories to share? Maybe it’s time to do some work on your tree yourself! Feel free to contact me for guidance.
