December 17 - Family History Summary

December 17 - Are you visiting or hosting relatives for the holidays? Prepare a quick family history summary to share.

The secret here is to keep it simple. All our relatives might not have the same love of family history as we do. Therefore keep the family history short and sweet. If you found a new generation, share that information or find something about an ancestor that is new and you haven't shared yet. For example: I came across an article of my half-siblings father who was involved in a bus accident during World War II. I had heard about the accident, but to find the newspaper article that talks about the accident and their father's actual involment was very interesting. In spite of his serious inquiry he managed to pull several people from the bus.
