3 Reasons to Study Genealogy With Your Kids: Guest Post

Hey guys!

I just wanted to let you all know that my latest post for My Joy-Filled Life is now live!

If you’re not familiar with My Joy-Filled Life, it’s a blog mainly for homeschooling families.  While we don’t yet consider ourselves a homeschooling family (simply because A is only a year old), it’s something we’re really excited about doing in the future. 

Both my husband and I love to learn, and would love to teach our son to enjoy learning just as much.

My husband has always enjoyed learning about history.  As for me, I found it to be a dull subject all through high school.  When I got to college, however, I had a teacher that focused on teaching historic events from the perspective of those who were actually there.

From there on out, the events I found so dull took on a new life.  They were vivid, exciting.  They mattered to me. And, possibly most importantly, I started to understand how those events in the past affected the present.

That’s just one reason why genealogy is a great thing to study with your kids.  In this post, I talk about two more, as well as tips on how to get started (because it can be super overwhelming when you first start!)

Great idea! Maybe this will be my New Year's resolution - to learn genealogy with the kids :)
