Project Recipe » Genealogy Activity Books for Kids

Sindi Terrien, Projectkin member and author of "Genealogy Fun While Developing New Genealogists" shares how you can create an Activity Book for kids based on your own family history

Earlier this evening I had the pleasure of hosting Sindi Broussard Terrien of My Many Mothers and Finding a Publisher to talk about how to create a kids’ Activity Book from your own family history materials.

Whatever the passion or mystery that fueled you in your pursuit of family stories and records, it’s a fair bet that one of your goals is to share your stories and records with future generations. Sindi’s work is focused on just that challenge. The secret, as she shares in this recording, is to know your audience and make Genealogy fun for them.

Sindi’s talk picks up where her book Genealogy Fun While Developing New Genealogists leaves off. You’ll find the transcript for the talk above ☝️ and below 👇 you’ll find a PDF of the slides.
