New Accessible K-12 Curriculum Teaches Family History Research

The Family History Curriculum was created to empower students to investigate their personal connections to history. Lessons are accessible to all students regardless of background, ethnicity, or family structure. Created by our team of experts, the curriculum teaches research methods used by professional genealogists and encourages students to explore real-world connections between the past and the present.
