Your involvement might be on a one-on-one basis like Elyse Doerflinger of Elyse’s Genealogy Blog who teaches her young cousin through fun-filled activities how to do genealogy or like Antoinette Harrell of Nurturing Our Roots who teaches her young granddaughter about her ancestry.
Getting Youth Involved in Genealogy
My Granddaughter Learning her Family History
Your involvement might be on a larger scale with an extensive program like the eight week program I just completed in teaching youth in my community how to research the histories of their church. Or it could be like the Ancestral Project taught by Nicka Smith of The Atlas Family Blog, whose program focused on teaching youth how to do family research. (See Programs section of this blog for articles about these two programs.)
Whatever the degree of your involvement, just do something. I invite Genealogists and Family Historians to share their ideas on this blog. Please feel free to contribute information by either posting a comment or sending me a message through the Contact Form on this site.
Happy Hunting and Don’t Forget the Youth!
