Tomorrow is Thanksgiving!
Many of us will gather with family, young and old ...
As genealogists we often talk about family trees. As family historians we have learned that the “kids” (and many adults also) are not necessarily as passionate about family trees as we are!

Well, that got me thinking, are there other “family trees” out there with which family members might identify! Who knows, if you can get them talking about “any” family tree, might their own personal one eventually get the attention it deserves?!?!?
