Family History: What we leave for our children

We often think of family history in one direction- what we are learning or "taking from" our ancestors. We rarely take the time to think about give and take in the other direction.

What's the legacy that you would like to leave for your children and for future generations? How are you making sure that it will be passed on?

There are many practices for ensuring that your family history survives into future generations. Perhaps the most crucial is including your children and descendants in your family history research.

By encouraging interest in the family tree from your children, grandchildren and other relatives, they will want to preserve the records for generations to come.

How much do your children know about their ancestors?

  1. Besides my genealogy websites, I have generated books with the MyHeritage Tree Builder program, also lists of ancestors, family group sheets, etc. Hope to add stories to my book of ancestors. Would love to generate a family tree but it wouldn't fit on my wall with all the ancestors I've built in!
  2. My father coment to us only about his father and mother. Before he pass a way he wrote what my childrens supose to know about my family.
    I start to search behind my grandfather, find alot of interesting history. Now I´m sending for all my relatives.
    In my opinion all family should write about his family.
