Ghosts, haunted houses, and graveyards.what better time to get into your genealogy than Halloween? If you're one of us who likes to research your family history, you probably visit graveyards, explore old houses, and re-tell family legends all year round, and you probably wish that you could be visited by family ghosts. But Halloween is the time of year when everyone else gets in on our fun. So here are some fun ways to celebrate the holiday.and your genealogy.
- Help one of your kids dress like an ancestor for Halloween, or do it yourself. Tell your ancestor's story to anyone who will listen.
- Forget store-bought Halloween candy. Make a fall-time treat that your ancestors would have enjoyed. Prepare toffee, dip some caramel apples, or pull taffy.
- Make one last cemetery expedition before it snows. Gather the information you need for the family lines you're working on. Bonus points if you tow family members along.
- Visit an old house that one of your ancestors lived in. Maybe it's haunted!
See if you can use Halloween as an excuse to fandangle your family into joining the genealogy cause, because Halloween isn't just for ghouls and goblins anymore.
