Grandma Ruth, who was wise beyond her formal education, said that time got faster as she aged. So . . . where exactly did 2018 go? It’s been a whirlwind, positive year for us, and hopefully for you. We greatly appreciate our clients, colleagues, referral partners, families, and even opposing counsel! For 2019, we continue to strengthen our foundation in the community. Our vision is to transform people’s lives by changing their outcomes. We will implement this vision through continued growth and outreach to educate more people across our international community about how they too can be a hero to their family and to their business. How will you challenge yourself to be better than who you were last year? How can you help those around you improve their circumstances? As we close out the business side of 2018, let’s all give greater focus to our families, loved ones, and community. Let’s focus on multiplying the positive things and strengthening relationships. Be a leader. Be a gamechanger. Be a hero.
While some parents worry about negative stories that may accompany their ancestry, many experts and historians encourage teaching children about their heritage and genealogy at a young age. Learning about their heritage and family traditions develops an important part of a child’s identity, so take the opportunity to teach your children about your family history and where those traditions come from. Gather the family together and follow these tips to teach the young’uns about the golden days.
Getting crafty is a popular way to teach your kids about their heritage. This gives children an outlet for their creative energy while educating them about the intricacies of genealogy and research. Kids can create a family tree or timeline with cardboard and construction paper. Have them start small with their own names and names of their siblings, parents, and grandparents. Then extend the tree to cousins, aunts, uncles, and great-relatives. Once they finish, have your kid present their family tree to a neighbor or their grandparent so they can teach others what they learned.
See you next year!
TAKE A STAYCATION
In today’s digital landscape, searching for ancestors and relatives is often as easy as a Google search. Visit the home country of your ancestors via Google Earth and learn more about the culture and heritage of your family’s ancestors. After taking a virtual tour of the city or town, search for recipes, games, or outfits that your family can create together. Have each kid select which one they’re interested in, and do them together!
