Family history research, or genealogy, is the fastest growing hobby in the United States.
Research shows that children who are best able to handle stress
are those who know the most about their family's history. Family
history can bring an understanding of common backgrounds, experiences
and interests. As children, grandchildren and descendants hear about
the past, they are more able to meet the future.
