Genealogy, Family History and the Younger Set

The August-September 2012 issue of Canada’s History magazine has an article by Paul Jones entitled “Genealogy Can Be Child’s Play” with some good ideas for interesting children in their own genealogy and family history. You can read this at the BCGS Walter Draycott Library or on-line as Canada’s History has posted the entire article complete with links here.

It’s a shame that the excellent youth resources at the Victoria Genealogical Society (BC) website aren’t mentioned though. For that link, and links to other resources on-line for children and teens, see the BCGS own page of suggestions for interesting and encouraging the younger genealogists and family historians. If you know of other resources, please let our webmistresses know. We’ll soon be listing some books there too, including the Victoria Genealogical Society’s Who’s In Your Family Tree: A Step-By-Step Guide For The Detective In Your Family and Jennifer Holik-Urban’s Generations Branching Out book series.
