Here’s my question: what are you doing with your family to observe Family History Month? Family Tree Magazine has a number of ideas on their site, including activities, downloads and book recommendations. ThoughtCo has a number of ideas, among them compiling a family cookbook (we’ve talked about favorite recipes before!); gathering and recording family stories; exploring family health history; field trips to ancestral home sites; scrapbooking; developing a family website; and preserving family photos. Be sure to check out the site for Minnkota Genealogical Society ( http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~minnkota/nfhm.html ) in North Dakota. And, it’s so important to include people of all ages; FamilyLocket.com (http://www.familylocket.com/family-history-for-children-and-teens/) has fun activities for children and teens. So, if you try anything you find here, do let me know how it turned out! See you later!
