Family History Bingo -- Have Fun With The Family This Holiday Season!

Copyright 2014 Diane L Richard aka MosaicRPM
The holidays are approaching and often a time of family gatherings.  I read an Ancestry.com blog post Creative Ways to Get Your Kids Excited About Family History Month – Part One which had some neat ideas.

Though, I would change the title to Creative Ways to Just Have Fun With Family History!  I had a blast making the above version of Family History Bingo.  What a fun way to walk down memory lane.  It will be even more fun when I play it with my kids (well young adults)!  Since I am publishing this online, I have only used photos of those who are deceased.  Obviously, for your own family you can include children, parents, cousins and other living relatives.


I then created a version with duplicate photos of people. Can you “match” the photos for each person?  And, since 25 spaces isn’t divisible by two, there is a third image for one person.  Can you match them?  Post your guesses as a comment (FB or at the blog) or send an email to UpFront@ngsgenealogy.org.  In a few days I will post a follow-up post with the answers of who they are and where they are in my maternal family tree!
