Genealogy and Family History: For Children

A guide to assist those interested in starting a family history project.

Introducing Children to Genealogy

Introducing your children and grandchildren to genealogy at an early age can lead to a life long interest in preserving your family history. Below are my picks for books that will introduce your children to the concept of family history preservation. Check the TMCC Library, or the Washoe County Public Library for these books. If they are not available, please ask how you can borrow them through an Inter-Library Loan.
