A Few Ideas For Doing Genealogy With Children

For the youngest of children, family history "training" should begin with family photos and  picture books. 

When you show your young child family photos, start by showing them pictures of relatives they are familiar with. Maybe tell a story about that person, or a fact that might be interesting to your child; "Aunt Jeanie loves chocolate just like you!" If you jump right in with a photo of a long dead relative, your child may not be able to put that person into the context of their own life yet. Build up interest by starting with "near" relatives, and don't forget to include yourself!
