23 December – Roots Day
Today is Roots Day! The holiday season is full of family functions and gatherings, so it’s the perfect time to celebrate your roots! Many people take their family history and ancestry for granted, and never take the time to learn about the struggles and triumphs of their ancestors and the history of their family name.
It is our genealogy that makes us who we are today, so take the time to sit down with your older relatives and talk to them about the past. You may hear some funny stories and learn a few things about your family that you never knew before!
Another activity you can start today is the creation of a family tree. There are several free websites that can help you easily create your family tree. Enjoy Roots Day!
