Each year, the United States designates October as Family
History Month. This year, the Senate reissued the designation. This act
recognizes the growing popularity of genealogy--over 80 million genealogists
strong! It is one of America's favorite hobbies--and the Internet has played a
big role in increasing it's numbers.
The need to preserve one's heritage is strong in these modern times. Those 80
million folks are searching for ways to locate and preserve their heritage. They
include family trees, video taped interviews, photo albums, family websites,
oral histories, and so forth.
In essence, by working on your family tree, you honor your heritage every day. By filling in a name, date, and place on your pedigree, you ensure that another person will not be forgotten. They will be remembered though they may have been paupers instead of princes. Below are a few suggested activities that will help plan your observance of Family History Month.
|Family History Month||Community Service Projects||Links for Family History|
|Kansas Kids Kin Konnections||Family History Youth Awards|
|US Surgeon General's Family History Initiative||Family Health History||Links for Family Health History|
|Family Health History Day|
