Family Reunions: Connecting Generations

One of the greatest joys of family is the sense of continuation from one generation to the next. This is never more apparent than during large family gatherings such as Family Reunions, weddings and during family holidays like Thanksgiving.

Family Reunions are more than just the perfect time for catching up and fun summer barbeques. They’re also unique opportunities for concentrations of knowledge, family tradition and family history. And family reunions are the perfect time to both pass on and learn about each others’ lives.

Preserving Family History

At your next Family Reunion, create a ‘Family History’ book. Start building a resource of the stories, information and life lessons from the entire family, so that nothing is ever lost. These stories will present the family history through the unique view of each storyteller, in their own words. Gathered together they will show a sense of continuity and lineage to younger generations they may never get a chance to learn otherwise.

Connecting Generations

Often, it is the youngest generation who are least interested in the exchange of knowledge that takes place during family reunions. Parents can help their children discover the value of learning the family story from the older generations by participating in the experiences themselves. By teaching children the value of knowing their family history, they will help ensure the family story will be shared well into the future.

Family Reunions are a great way to ensure your family history and your ancestors’ stories stay alive and vibrant for generations to come.
