    I Can Climb My Family Tree!

    Everybody has ancestors. What can you learn about yours? Here are fun ways to start climbing your own family tree!

    1. Write down your name, your parents’ names, and your grandparents’ names.

    2. Where were you born? What about your parents and grandparents? Can you find these places on a map?

    3. Do you have brothers and sisters? Draw a picture of them. Who are your parents’ brothers and sisters? Do your parents have a picture of them? Can you name them all?

    4. Ask your parents to go to Family Tree on FamilySearch.org. What can you find out about your grandparents on Family Tree? Did they have brothers and sisters? What can you find out about their parents?
