About The Family Legacy (Family Tree) Continues...........
It Provides Kids with a Connection
 Pass on a Sense of History

At home, children need to have a sense of history. It's part of understanding who they are. This includes their own personal history as well as how world history influenced family decisions. Talk about what you did when you were their age, finding a common element. My children can't believe that their grandparents lived without modern "necessities." This is basic history. When was television invented and when did you first experience it? What was your town like a few years ago or a century ago?

Every day in the news, we hear about children gone astray because they feel disconnected from their family and the world. As genealogists, you know that families are endlessly fascinating. By filling in the blanks on the charts you discover that while all families are unique, researching your family is a personal detective story. You discover characteristics about yourself that you have in common with an earlier ancestor. For example, a musically talented child discovers that his great-grandfather played an instrument and sang in the church choir.

It's an Intergenerational Activity

Have I convinced you yet that it's important to introduce children to family history? I hope so. If not, think about all the time you've spent accumulating documents, photographs, and artifacts from your family. Now, to whom are you going to leave all that material? Once you get a child curious about their family history and keep them interested, you've found someone who's going to take care of your efforts.
