Teaching Children to Love Family History
August 15, 2013 ByKristiana Silver knows that genealogy and family history aren’t just about old people. It’s not something that you have to wait until you are retired to start doing. Family history is also about young kids and mid-lifers learning about their ancestors who were also kids and teenagers once upon a time. It’s learning about people how lived, played and enjoyed doing the same things we do today. That’s the message that Kristiana Silver of Salt Lake City, Utah is teaching her 4 young sons. Her boys range in age from 4 to 10 years old. They enjoy a trip to the cemetery as much as their mom does. In fact, she’s teaching a lot of other people that same message.
