    I’m bored! Let’s do something!

    I’m already doing something. I’m looking at family photos.

    But I want to have a party!

    How about doing both? We could have a family history party!

    It sounds boring.

    Let’s go! It’ll be fun.

    Should we make some popcorn?

    Welcome to the family history party! Our first game is family tree trivia.

    Where was Grandma Jensen born?

    Now it’s time for the great index race! The team that indexes the most names wins.

    Look! That person has the same name as me.

    Now we’ve saved the best for last. Family history story time!

    When my dad was little, his family lived on a ranch …

    Later that night …

    That was the best party ever. Let’s do it again tomorrow!
