Labor Day weekend is here - a time to celebrate the contributions made by workers from the labor movement. It's also time for families to get together and enjoy the last bit of summer with barbecues, parades and reunions.
In honor of the holiday, we’re providing free access – from August 31 through September 2 – to all US Census records.
The New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) blog - The Weekly Genealogist - posts an interesting survey each week.
A recent post focused on the genealogy summer plans of its readers.
MyHeritage would also like to know about your summer plans. Will you visit your family's ancestral homes? Interview senior relatives? Attend a gen conference?
Happy Fourth of July! Get out your barbecue grills, fireworks and gather your families to celebrate the birth of America and the adoption of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress.
Independence Day marks a weekend of celebrations including parades, picnics, fireworks and other family fun-filled activities.
Also known as Independence Day, Americans come together to commemorate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence and the country’s birthday.
A great time to celebrate American heritage, it is also fun to share the holiday with families at barbecues, picnics, parades, fairs, firework displays and other family activities.
Happy Father’s Day!
We asked you to share your memories and sayings from your father. We wanted to know how he had an impact on your life, whether it was advice, a loving saying or a life lesson.
We received numerous responses completing the sentence: “My father used to say… .”
Fathers are monumental figures in our lives and are known for giving great advice. The 17th-century poet George Herbert said that “one father is more than 100 schoolmasters.”
Father’s Day is a celebration honoring dads, granddads and paternal bonds, and in honor of the day we want to know how your dad made an impact on your life by participating in our competition (see details below.)
The day has American roots and was founded in Spokane, Washington by Sonora Smart Dodd.
Yesterday, the US celebrated Memorial Day to honor fallen soldiers who served in the Armed Forces.
Memorial Day has many traditions, including spending time with family at a barbeque and sharing memories of relatives who served in the military.
To help you learn more about your family heritage and your relatives and ancestors who served in service, we offered last week free access to our most popular US military record collections.
Memorial Day in the US is May 27, and millions of Americans will remember the men and women who died while serving in the US Armed Forces.
In honor of this special day, we are proud to provide free access - through May 28 - to our most popular collections of US military records.
Journey back in time to some of the most important conflicts in world history that not only impacted families in the US, but millions of families worldwide.
Mother’s Day is nearly here. What better way to thank our mothers for everything they've done for us than by reflecting on all the wonderful mothers out there.
Mothers have a strong impact on our lives. Many even say that “mother knows best.”
Whether they are, in fact, our grandmothers, our aunts or our own mothers, all leave us with lasting impressions of the advice and wisdom they share.
Growing up, I remember listening to my grandmother recall her childhood, and learning about my own history. On my first day of school, I remember my mother's hug and her words of encouragement, reassuring me that everything would be OK. I know that - even today - I can always count on these great women in my family.
Yet some of the most important people who shape our lives are those with whom we grow up every day.
Today, April 10, is National Siblings Day. It celebrates the impact our brothers and sisters had or have on us and how much we appreciate them.
The day was founded by Claudia A. Evart through a non-profit charity, Siblings Day Foundation, in 1998, to honor the memory of her late sister and brother who died in accidents at an early age.
Siblings are our closest family members, other than our parents, with whom we grew up with every day; the bonds we share with them last forever.
