We visited my grandma last weekend and like usual, we started talking about the family history.
At which point my Dad said that when he was a kid he traced our lineage back over one thousand years.
I’m sure that was no easy feat in the 80’s, nor would it be today. But what a fascinating challenge to carry out. There is definitely a rich, contextualized project waiting to be assigned related to family history.
I think it would be worth many of us revisiting our family trees and getting up to speed with where we came from.
