TIP # 1) Discover Family History Month

The purpose of Family History month is “to bring your family together to remember and honor your ancestors,” according to www.familyhistory.org. Many groups across the country, including the Family History Society of Arizona, initiated momentum to have October designated as Family History month in 2003. You can uncover more detailed information on this special month at the following Web sites.
