Family History for Kids

This guide will help you find materials suitable for involving children in family history research.


Sharing research, records and family lore can help build connections between members of your extended family, and can help family members make connections with their ancestors, and with history generally. There are many different activities kids can can do with adults or by themselves to help build the family tree and discover information that has been lost, as well as sharing stories and connections with other living relatives.
