What's coming?

I hope you're excited!  THE GENEALOGY KIDS are getting ready to post their very first video (which will appear here as well as on our youtube channel).


Well, they're my kids.  I am Jana Greenhalgh, a mother and family historian.  My husband Brent and I are the parents of six great kids.  Our oldest two children, Nathan & Becca, will be the hosts of our family's new video series -- The Genealogy Kids -- featuring tips for researching your ancestors.
As a degreed genealogist (BA in Genealogy/Family History from BYU) and the producer/editor of THE GENEALOGY KIDS, I have outlined these homemade films to be instructional for anyone seeking to research their family history.  That means kids and kids-at-heart will be entertained and educated.  Doing genealogy shouldn't be overly complicated, so our films are simple and short.  Each of our videos will feature an ancestor from our family -- someone to serve as an example while we demonstrate our family history search skills.  Each episode will highlight 3 "Tree Tips," and watching the episodes in order will help you to understand the basic steps of genealogical research.

Kids make things fun, so don't expect a boring lecture in our films.  In fact, expect a "genealogy joke of the day" and other exciting features like "Research Rules! with Rebecca" (sound research techniques as taught by a darling 10-year old girl) and "Nathan's No-Nos!" (what NOT to do when researching your family history).

Over time, we hope to add features to our blog that will serve as references for young family historians and their families.  Check back soon for links to helpful websites, lists of our "Tree Tips," family history activities for kids, etc.

Please follow our blog and let us know what you think!
