Today is the last day of National Family History Month, but if you missed it, don’t worry! This is one celebration that certainly can, and should, go on all year round. And in terms of downsizing, it’s a good activity to keep going so that when it’s time to make your next move you won’t be caught with boxes and boxes of unorganized photographs and documents–you’ll have separated what’s important from what’s not, and made sure the important stuff is properly preserved and kept.
Here are links to a few great resources and ideas about how to preserve, discover, celebrate and explore your own family’s history.
As the holidays approach, there will be all kinds of opportunities for you to celebrate your family’s present–as well as your shared history. Enjoy it!
