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

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.
