September 27, 2012 - Ancestor Appreciation Day

I hope your grandparents are still alive and part of your life. Grandparents can be such an interesting source of family information and wisdom!

Did you get to meet your great-grandparents? Or any other members of your family that are three generations earlier?

Do you have family photo albums to pore over? Has anyone in your family done genealogy research? If so, did they gather their info in a book or on a website?

Today is a great day to start asking these questions and getting some answers. Looking at old census forms, newspapers (obituaries and birth and wedding announcements), and other public records is a way to extend beyond whatever you and your relatives have in your family memorabilia cabinets and bookshelves and trunks.

Find some genealogy resources here and here
