Make history come alive for children by teaching them about their ancestors. Kids can unlock the mysteries of other cultures, other places and other times as they find out whom their forebears were, when they were born, where they lived and what they did.
Genealogy can do more than just teach kids about the past. They'll become closer to their living relatives as they learn more about their family's origins. As children piece family stories together, they'll also learn more about themselves. Genealogy can help kids gain pride in themselves, their family and their heritage.
While genealogy research can be time-consuming and complicated, there are activities that children can do. Filling out a family tree, interviewing relatives and recording family legends are just a few possibilities. These sites will help parents and teachers direct children in their genealogy research.
