Several days and months of the year are dedicated to genealogy and family history. These days and months remind us of our ancestors’ importance. And they can inspire us to research our family tree.
They encourage us to connect and re-connect with family and friends. We can use reunions to learn about ‘new‘ branches and ancestors in our family tree.
But also we can hear ‘new‘ stories, tales and anecdotes.
We may discover new records, documents, old family photographs and newspaper articles featuring our ancestors while we research.
