Why Share Family History with Children?
Hosted by Nicole Dyer, March 2017
Welcome to the very first “Family History for Children” blog link up, where each month I will host a collection of your blog articles about this subject. I loved the genealogy blog party by Elizabeth O’Neal at Little Bytes of Life and this is partly inspired by her. Thank you Elizabeth!
Rather than focusing on genealogy in general, I am inviting you to share about the important topic of Family History for Children (ages 0-18). My hope is to add inspirational stories and practical tips to the growing amount of content online about this subject to help families, schools, genealogy societies, and communities make teaching family history to children a priority. Each month I will choose a theme within this topic. For this month, I thought it would be fitting to start with the “why.”
Why do you think it’s important to share family history with children? Why do you do it?
How did knowing family history at a young age help you? What has motivated you to begin sharing family history with children? What do you hope to accomplish by telling family stories to your kids? What does the research say about how family history helps kids (some research articles listed here)? Bloggers have answered these questions and more in the following posts.
