Making A Difference Through Genealogy

While browsing geneablogger.com I came across a really interesting site called ancestors-unknown.org and if you haven’t heard of the site or the program you should definitely check it out. Founder Dana Saxon and her team setup a program where they teach high school age students the skills to research and tell their own family histories. In some aspect researching family history is like investing, it’s best to start earlier rather than later. Researching your family history while you have access to certain people who can share vital information can make a great difference in your research.  Some of the students that attend this program may still have three or even four generation alive to get this important information from, I like many other genealogist wish they could have asked their grandparents,  great aunt or uncle and other relatives questions while they were alive.  I also think this is a great program because researching their family history can give the students a since of pride as well as make them want to strive to do better.
