Family History Day for Homeschoolers – Allison Singleton, Discovery Center and The Genealogy Center.
Many parents want their children to be interested in their family’s history but fostering that interest may be a challenge. The Genealogy Center can engage parents and children alike with a Family History Day. It is a day-long program with two classroom-style lessons and guided research time to explore the collection. Each child will receive a worksheet to complete, tailored to his or her age, experience, and grade level.
