Celebrating Family History During the Month of October
October 08, 2012
October is Family History Month, but it is also a month for many other holidays and observances. So, why not celebrate some of them together? The first Sunday in October is Intergenerational Day, so take some time to share your stories with the younger generations. October 13th is Frustration Scream Day, so if you are feeling frustrated by your genealogy, just let out a scream (preferably before you walk into the Library). You can’t go wrong by celebrating your successes in genealogy with some cake and ice cream for National Dessert Day on October 14th.
While those notions are fun, some more practical ideas include signing up for a class this month, trying a new library database, or just setting aside some time to come in and work on your family history. If you have never been to the Midwest Genealogy Center, stop by and pick up a beginner packet so you can learn how to get started on your genealogy. I could go on and on, but since Babbling Day is not until October 21st, I guess it will just have to wait...
