Many parents want their children to become interested in their family’s history and genealogy, but fostering that interest may be a challenge. The Genealogy Center can engage parents and children alike with a Family History Day on Thursday October 20, 2016 from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM.

Allison DePrey Singleton will host a day-long program with two classroom-style lessons and guided research time to explore The Genealogy Center collection. Each child will receive a worksheet to complete, tailored to his or her age, experience, and grade level.

10:00 AM - 10:30 AM – Break – Research on own
