Family History Starter Kit:

Understanding & Citing Records

Overview

The primary sources and documents found on Ancestry give students the opportunity to make connections to their ancestors, historical places, and events throughout time. Their research journey will provide powerful insights into their own family and bring their curriculum to life in relevant and exciting ways.

In addition to using records to build out their own family trees, we’ve included additional research activities below for students to explore the lives and legacies of historical figures throughout history.
