Ancestor Appreciation Day
Do you know who the people were you descended from? Where did they live? Did they immigrate to the country you live in during the past few generations or have they lived on the same continent for centuries? How did their life choices help to get you to where you are today? Ancestor Appreciation Day is a day to learn about and appreciate your ancestors. It is a day to look into your family history, to learn about generations you have never learned about before. It is a day to research and do interviews. According to Chase's Calendar of Events, the day is sponsored by the Ancestor Appreciation Day Association in Ann Arbor, MI.
The day could be spent looking into your family history and researching your genealogy. It may be a good idea to first make a research plan. Focusing on one side of the family at a time, and even one person at a time, may be a good way to start. You should also make sure you have a plan to organize all the information you find. Making a family tree chart as you work is a good idea. Another good thing to do when starting out is to check to see if anyone else in your family has already done genealogical research.
