Introducing the next generation to Family History
published by Pat Hase on Sat, 20/07/2019 - 23:49

We are working towards interesting younger people in Family History.  One Photograph was taken at the Kewstoke Local History exhibition showing pupils from Kewstoke School with Graham Payne. 

and the other at the Free Help Session at the library with young Xander Tinsley having a go himself under the guidance of Roy Smith. Any more ideas for spreading the word?

On the question you asked in a circular email the other day about Introducing the next generation to Family History I wonder, given (most) youngster\'s keenness to solve solvable problems and liking for the Internet/technology, they could be asked to try to find the full names, years and places of birth of, say, their great-grandparents or something like that and for the children to draw a rough family tree with them at the bottom? Of course, appropriate sensitivity is needed - some children are adopted, or are the great-grandchildren of immigrants to the UK etc etc and so the problems to be solved needs to be tailor-made after discussion with parents. Just an idea!

Thank you, Peter Cardiff for this suggestion.  Bearing what you have said,  perhaps we need to help our members to get the younger members of their own families involved first.  A Grandparents\' Guide to passing on an interest in Family History?  Any more suggestions?
