As we are waiting out the end of winter and spending more time inside, have you considered reading fiction with a genealogy twist?  Maybe you can pick up some tips, while being entertained in a 21st century format! 

 

African-American History is honored in February, and Women’s History Month is celebrated in the U. S. every March.  Do you have a special person in your family tree who needs some extra time and is deserving of a little more research?  Maybe these yearly activities will encourage you to make a plan to delve deeper.
