Genealogy And The Next Generation


Thanks to the internet and the rising popularity of genealogy, the next generation will find it a lot easier to trace their ancestry and learn about their ancestors. New websites for researching family history are sprouting up, more databases are added all the time and more genealogy blogs are being created every day.

A lot of the genealogy sites are aware of the trend and have pages and activities that help get children involved in discovering their family history, making it fun, like Family Tree Magazine’s “Family Tree Kids” pages , WorldGenWeb For Kids from Rootsweb/Ancestry.com and even childrens’ game sites like Kids Turn Central have links for budding genealogists.

Now is the time to begin to train the youngsters on the correct way to scan documents and photos, store documents safely, cite their sources, and safeguard their research.
Doing research on family history and documenting the research will help them with their schoolwork as well, and they will develop skills that will last a lifetime.
