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 large family gatherings such as on Thanksgiving, at weddings or during Family Reunions.
Family Reunions are more than just the perfect time for catching up and fun summer barbecues. They’re also incredibly unique concentrations of knowledge, family tradition and history. And they are the perfect opportunity to both pass on and learn about new experiences that have occurred in each others’ lives.
Preserving Family History
At your next Family Reunion, create a ‘Family History’ book. Start building a resource of the stories, information and life lessons from the entire family, so that nothing is ever lost. These stories will show the family history through the unique view of each storyteller. Together they will show a sense of continuity and lineage that will help teach lessons to younger generations they may never get a chance to learn otherwise.
Often, it is the youngest generation who are least interested and willing to participate in the sharing of knowledge that occurs during Family Reunions. Parents can help their children discover the value of learning their family story from the older generations by participating in the experiences themselves. By teaching children the value of knowing and celebrating their family history, they will help extend the passing on the family story indefinitely into the future.
Family Reunions offer a great way to ensure your family history and your ancestors’ stories and contributions stay alive and vibrant for generations to come.
