October is Family History Month in the US
Family History has its very own month, how will you celebrate? A family reunion? Visiting an ancestral location? Sharing old photographs with your family? How about listening to stories of your renegade or outlaw ancestors (the best!)? The choices are almost endless.
I will be observing Family History Month socially, online. With my family residing coast to coast, online sharing options will reach the most family members.
I've singled out four options that will make it easy for you to spotlight your favorite, and not so favorite, ancestors and share them with your family.
4 Ways To Celebrate Family History Month
Amy Johnson Crow has rolled out version 2.0 of her highly successful 31 Days To Better Genealogy program and it's better than ever. Sign up to get a daily email containing your action items.
Head over to Instagram and participate in Genealogy Girl Talks Photo A Day meme. Melissa Dickerson has created prompts for the month to inspire your photo sharing.
Elizabeth Swanay O'Neal has been hosting good ole blog parties and the October theme will not disappoint. Prepare for something strange.
For those who love Twitter, you know all about Twitter chats and how much fun they are. Pinchat is focused on best practices, tips and tools for Pinterest. The hosts of Pinchat, Kim Vij and Kelly Lieberman asked ME to guest host a family history themed chat. Please join me!
However you choose to honor, recognize or share your ancestors stories, just be sure you do. It is too easy for family stories to go undocumented and eventually be forgotten.
