Family History...the Next Generation

Pat Southern & Tonya McCoy

To keep genealogy alive, we must pass it on. Take time to get children interested and involved—taking them to libraries and some of your genealogical excursions allows them to see the importance of preserving family history. They can help look for items, carry material, feed the copier, or witness the general enthusiasm of researching. Of course, information obtained during research can be further shared with family members of all ages at reunion time.
