A Gift for the Holidays: A New Guide to Help Children Explore their Family History

Share this post:

We have spent many a winter holiday post acknowledging the family connections that are part of the holiday season. Sharing stories and holiday traditions are often the highlights of  family gatherings. Now staff from the Library’s Researcher and Reference Services have created a guide to help children gather family stories, organize photographs and other family memories, create gifts for family members and create a family tree. We hope you will explore this resource with the children in your life and encourage them to document their family stories and history.

May your holidays be peaceful and allow time for sharing and celebration.

  1. Fascinating!

  2. Hopefully there will be an avenue set up in each state, aside from Ancestry,that allows adopted persons to obtain non-identifying information.
    It is heartbreaking to have my adult child or grands look at me strange for not knowing my birth weight or time of birth that is on every birth cert except an Adoptee. The Dr of delivery is the State Head of Health that year.
