Lately I have been feeling the need to teach young people about genealogy. The feeling started about a year ago, but I did not actively pursue this area until recently. I have been researching my family history since 1994 and conducting genealogy workshops since 1998. But now, I feel the need to reach out to the young. As a result, I have begun searching for resources related to teaching youth about genealogy. Today and in future blog postings, I will discuss some of my findings. If you have taught young people how to do genealogy, I encourage you to share your experiences.
One video I discovered was done by Elyse Doerflinger of Elyse’s Genealogy Blog. In this video, Elyse shares how she is teaching her young cousin how to do genealogy.
