Happy Anniversary to William and I!

Wednesday was the 1 year "blogiversary" of the Knowing William blog!

We also hit 1000 page views this week! Woohoo!

To celebrate I am posting one of my recent projects, even though it doesn't directly relate to William. I think he would forgive me since I'm training up the next generation of his descendants to love learning about family history. Last month my six-year-old son and I went on a family history road trip adventure!

It was a wonderful experience getting to hang out together, just the two of us, without daddy or his 2- and 3-year-old siblings. We learned all about history as we did some "detective work" on one branch of our Louisiana family.

While on our adventure, we took some documentary video footage and lots of pictures. He also kept a journal where he wrote and drew pictures about the things we did. Here are our finished products. Enjoy!

You're never too young to start appreciating who your family is and where they come from. Check out my pinterest board "Family history for kids and non-genealogists" for ideas on activities and conversation starters for the future family history detectives in your life!
