October and Family History

Did you know that October is Family History Month? That's right - October is the month in which you should celebrate your family history and maybe even motivate you start your own genealogy search!

In 2001 October was officially named Family History Month in hopes that people would talk to their neighbors, friends and family about their family history. It may be a great way to get to know your friends and their ancestry!

One great idea to celebrate this Family History Month is take a genealogy class. A genealogy class can help you to get started in your genealogy search for that long, lost relative who emigrated from Germany. Many genealogical societies offer genealogy classes for you to take. Online classes are offered also through major genealogy websites. It is up to you to decide which one will work best. There may be a fee for each class but it also may even be free!
