The physical and mental health benefits of grandparents spending quality time with their grandchildren is well-documented. Doing genealogy activities can be a great way to spend time together and engage the next generation of family historians. Even in a pandemic, multi-generational families can participate in genealogy research using no technology, low technology, or advanced technology. This presentation will highlight many of these activities and encourage different ways to pass along family stories from one generation to the next.
