For those of you who weren’t aware, October is Family History Month here. First approved by the United States Senate in 2001, Family History Month has helped to encourage genealogy to become the second-most popular hobby activity in America. However, it’s important to realize that there’s more to family’s story than just genealogy.
One of the greatest joys of family is the sense of continuation from one generation to the next. This is never more apparent than during Family Reunions.
These days everyone, from Grandparents to Grandchildren, seems to be plugged into the internet. Take advantage of technology to stay connected by creating your own Family Website. A Family Website is a great way to enjoy photographs, document memories, and deliver important news. Here are few tips on starting yours.
I’m excited to kick-off Family History Month with a trip down South to capture a family’s story in a Family Documentary Video for their upcoming reunion. The weather has cooled in Chicago so the warmth of the Alabama sun is definitely welcome. The thought of meeting a new family and helping to capture and preserve their story fills me with anticipation once again.
