Another aspect of Family History

in #familyhistory3 months ago

When you hear about Family History, you generally think about one of two things:

  • names, places, and dates
  • stories about people (most of whom are long dead)

Today, I want to talk about another aspect of Family History that most people under forty would not consider...life lessons. The older we get, the more we learn about life, love, and things in general. These nuggets that we uncover as we walk through our daily activities become treasures that, as we age, we want to pass along to our kids and grandkids. These (more than money) are the things that we want to leave for our descendants when we pass from this earth.

I found a post that falls right in line with topic. It's called "6 Highly Effective Habits to Adopt From Your Grandma" and it was posted by @homestead-guru. Take a look and see if you already do any of these six things.


Do you have an activity or past time that you enjoy that has been handed down through multiple generations? What about something you learned from your parents or grandparents that you are sharing with your children and/or grandchildren? Tell us all about it here in the Family History Community.

Do you have any stories from when you were growing up that you would like to share with your family?

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read my post and thanks for sharing a reply.

This is something that I am deeply interested in. I've been gathering information on both sides of my family for years.

I would love to hear about some of the stories you have started collecting (even if it's just about where your families came from). Please feel free to post them in the Family History Community.
