Whether you're curious about your family's history or want to encourage younger family members to learn about their ancestors, our free Family History Kit makes it fun to discover the past. From a create-your-own family tree, to family interview questions and a family recipe sheet, this kit gets kids and adults thinking about those who came before them. It also gets them to think about how their family traditions were established, and what they can learn from previous generations. It's a simple way to learn the story of your family and is designed to spark kids' curiosity about their grandparents, great-grandparents, and more.
The kit acts as a great introduction to genealogy, engaging kids and adults with the process of discovering more about their ancestors and providing unique worksheets to record and organize everything they they learn. We hope family members will work together to uncover more about their family history and think about the many things that make their family unique.
With this kit, we also wanted to capture the present. Even if you don't have a lot of information about past family history, you can start capturing it now. This is why we included pages like the family traditions sheet and a family recipe.
Should you want to dig even deeper into the past, you can try searching the Internet for free genealogy resources or getting a subscription to a genealogy website. Local historical societies can also act as resources to learning more about your family tree. Whether you choose to dig deep into your family's past or just document your current family, we hope you have a great time with this kit.
