Charlotte and Jonah Barnes solved the problem of getting a child to listen to a long family story. When a child understands where they come from, they are “more confident, resilient, successful and happy.” Their book is chock full of activities that make it fun and enjoyable for both parents and grandparents to share their stories in a way that appeals to kids. Creative activities include treasure hunts, dressing up, picture colorizing, make making and even flower planting. These fun games unite the family in ways they might never have thought to before.
This book offers a simple approach to sharing family history- with loads of fun and entertainment to last throughout the years.
When I found from Paper to People I had been doing my family research for almost 30 years. I thought I understood the online communities and best research practices, I was mistaken. There are such amazing insights and tips and advice in each episode that almost everyone can find a new way to look at the same old documents. When you listen to the podcast I recommend a way to take notes so you can apply the suggestions in your own research.
