When children have enjoyable experiences in family history at an early age, they are more likely to continue with it as they grow older, and reap the benefits as they go.
Adults and older youth can guide children to success using the Children's page (this page) in The Family History Guide. Know each child's abilities and limitations as you guide them through the activities and learning process. A rich experience awaits them—and you!
This section provides tips and resources for motivating and involving children in family history.
The activities are divided into these sections: About Family History, Project 1: Family Tree, Project 2: Memories, Project 9: Countries, and Misc. The Activities are coded as P for Preschool, C for Children 6-11, and Y for Youth 12 and over (ages are approximate). A is for Apps or Online Games.
Note: Some youth may prefer using the Goals and Choices in The Family History Guide rather than the Youth Activities on the Children's page.
