 With everyone gathered together, there’s no better time than the holidays to have your children learn more about their family history. Let your kids share center stage with their grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and/or family friends as they conduct the interviews. Be sure to videotape the conversations. You just might end of watching them next year!

Below are some good questions from Family Tree Magazine to get your kids started:

  1. When and where were you born?
  2. What were your parents’ names?
  3. What is your happiest memory of your father? Your mother?
  4. What is the most important lesson your parents taught you?
  5. What are the names of your grandparents?
  6. What is your happiest memory of your grandfather? Grandmother?
  7. Where did you grow up?
  8. What did you do for fun as a child?
