October is Family History Month, and it's the perfect time to embark on a rewarding journey of discovery and preservation. Here's a tip to make the most of this special month:
📜 Tip: Share Your Ancestral Stories on Social Media 📜
Challenge yourself to share at least one family history story or discovery every week on your social media platforms. If you're feeling ambitious, aim for 3 to 5 posts a week. By doing so, you are not only celebrating your heritage but also contributing to the preservation of your family's history.
🌳 For Historical and Genealogical Societies 🌳
If you're part of a historical or genealogical society's social media team, use this opportunity to spotlight individuals from your community's past. Share intriguing stories about the people who once lived in your area, helping to connect your society with the wider community.
🔍 For Professional Genealogists 🔍
Professional genealogists can join in too! Share your own personal genealogical journey or, with your clients' permission, highlight the fascinating discoveries you've made during your research. Your insights can inspire others and shed light on the incredible world of genealogy.
