 Jenny's letter


Have you ever wondered about your family’s origin and ancestors? For many of us, our grandparents are our last line of connection to their parents and grandparents. I’m lucky to still have my grandmother to help fill in a lot of the blanks for me. Through her, I’ve learned a lot about our family tree, not to mention that having a deeper relationship with my grandmother has helped me throughout my life.

I’ve been working with my children on creating a family tree and forging stronger relationships with their grandparents. They are learning a lot about family history, and they are being introduced to ideas and traditions we can incorporate and keep passing through the family -- kind of like creating genealogical heirlooms.

I have found some great resources - I hope you’ll share them with your readers so they can enjoy them.
