Why Preserve Family History and Ancestry?

Preserving your family's history can be an incredibly rewarding experience. It can help you discover new aspects of your family culture, values, and beliefs, and it can give you a greater sense of connection to your ancestors. It can also help you learn more about yourself, and give you a deeper understanding of your place in the world. 

According to genealogy expert Lisa Louise Cooke, "Preserving family history isn't just about researching and documenting the past, it's about connecting with the present and building bridges to the future. It's about giving your children and grandchildren a sense of their place in the world, and helping them understand how they fit into the bigger picture."

Creating a Family Memory Box

A family memory box or time capsule is a wonderful way to preserve your family's history and culture. It can include items that represent your family's values, beliefs, traditions, and important milestones. 

Here are some suggestions for what to include in your family memory box: 

Family Tree: A family tree is a visual representation of your family's ancestry. It can be a great starting point for exploring your family history. 

Photographs: Photographs are a great way to document your family's history. They can include family members, important events, and special occasions.

Letters and documents: Letters and documents can provide insights into your family's past. They can include birth and death certificates, immigration records, and old family letters. 

Family recipes: Family recipes can be a wonderful way to document your family's culture and traditions. They can include recipes passed down from generation to generation, or special recipes that have been created for important occasions. 

Family heirlooms: Family heirlooms can include anything that has been passed down from generation to generation, such as jewellery, furniture, or other items with sentimental value.
