Kids Build a Family Tree at the Library

AFHS helps Kids build a Family Tree Booklet at the library

Alberta Family Histories Society helped eight to ten year olds build a Family Tree Booklet at the Calgary Public Library

The Alberta Family Histories Society led a group of eight to ten year old children in a pilot project entitled “Build a Family Tree Booklet” this past weekend at the Crowfoot branch of the Calgary Public Library.   The project was coordinated by AFHS PR committee member Joan Miller in partnership with the Calgary Public Library.  Assisting were AFHS PR members Don Alexander and Joan Clarke.

Eleven enthusiastic young people  completed their booklets and asked lots of questions about how to do their family tree.  Robyn Taphorn, the librarian found a great selection of books appropriate to the topic.

Joan M. and the team had great fun teaching and guiding the children.  This project will likely be repeated.

 

For those looking for more information or with plans to do a similar program, Joan Miller expands on the kids program here.
