Growing Little Leaves: Introducing Children to Genealogy
July 27, 2014
Indiana Historical Society (Day Classrooms)
1 to 3 p.m.
1 to 3 p.m.
Introducing children to genealogy is something many parents and grandparents desire to do but few know how to implement. Growing Little Leaves is a new IHS series created to meet this need. This inaugural program is for children 3 to 7 years old with adult supervision. Older children might enjoy the activities with some parent modification during the program. Children will be introduced to genealogy basics through three stations of hands-on activities based on geography, heirlooms and family relationships. Snacks will be provided at the end of the last activity.
Emily Kowalski Schroeder is a genealogist, blogger, mother of two and meteorologist. Growing Little Leaves is based on her blog of the same title. Allison DePrey Singleton is the assistant coordinator for education and community engagement at IHS. She is a graduate of Indiana University with master's degrees in public history and library science. Amy Vedra is the director of reference services at the William H. Smith Memorial Library. She holds master's degrees in arts in history and library science.
