Summer: Perfect for family gatherings

Summer: Perfect for family gatherings
family reunion
Aaron wrote this post from the UK where, after what’s been called the wettest June in a century, he reports that it looks like summer has finally arrived!

Summer’s a great time for meeting up with friends and family. Many of us have relatives scattered in a specific country, if not abroad. When summer comes, it provides an opportunity to reconnect and get together with family.

If we have school-age children, we tend to use some the summer holidays to reconnect with family.

When the family gets together – especially for extended time – it’s a great opportunity to informally discuss family history.

We can help by bringing out old family photo albums and scrapbooks. We can encourage senior relatives to share their stories and memories.

These activities can inspire the younger generations to investigate their family history.

Are you planning to organize or attend a family reunion this summer? Tell us more in the comments section below.

    I seem to always be the first to pull out the old pictures, but they do lead to fun and interest for all.
