At the FGS 2011 conference in Springfield, Illinois, I purchased several books. One was Teaching Genealogy to Young People by Bee Bartron Koons.
This book is amazing. The front section is a teacher’s manual divided into sections by age/grade level so you know exactly where to start with young people. The lessons are short and to the point and increase in complexity as the child grows. The back section is a large appendix full of charts and forms to use with the lessons.
My local genealogical society is look at ways to encourage the younger generation to be involved in family history research. This book has so many wonderful ideas I think it will be very helpful for this project.
