When I think of genealogical and family history success, I think of times when I have solved a brick wall problem, or when I find the missing piece to a genealogy puzzle.
This morning I experienced a different kind of success story. It happened with a living relative - my 3-year-old son.
Back in November, I published an article about how to create a Family Tree Bookmark. Using Legacy Charting I created picture-descendancy bookmarks for my extended family. My hope was that the bookmark would help my nieces and nephews remember each other better, as we do not live nearby.
So, this morning I found my 3-year-old sitting in the middle of the floor in his bedroom. He was looking at the bookmark. When he noticed that I entered the room, he said, "Daddy, these are my cousins. I see them at Grandma's house!" Of course, my heart melted and I experienced another Genealogy Happy Dance. I can't wait for him to be just as excited about our trips to the cemetery....
