The Genealogy Blog Party - June 2017


It’s all about the descendants!

Whether you’ve been researching your family history for 3 years or 30 years, your research is precious to you. Think about how hard you’ve worked: the brick walls, the emails from previously-unknown cousins, the late night happy dances, What will happen to your research after you’re gone?

Q: How will you preserve your family history research for YOUR descendants?

Examples include (but are not limited to):

  • Writing a family history book
  • Creating a family tree chart
  • Adding family photos and ephemera to a scrapbook
  • Saving your blog posts to print in a book
  • Digitizing old media (VHS tapes, reel-to-reel films, slides, prints, etc.)

If you haven’t started doing any of these yet, hopefully, this will get you thinking about it!

The June Genealogy Blog Party: Remember the Descendants

No “direct line” descendants? Don’t forget about collateral descendants, such nieces, nephews, cousins, and anyone who might come along after you’re gone looking for information about your family and its history.
