Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research Presents -
Here Comes the Family! Preparing for the Family Reunion
Ah, the family reunion – one of the oldest, but potentially one of the most enjoyable family traditions. A time for sharing and embellishing old family stories, greeting the relatives that you only see once a year, seeing the new crop of babies since the last reunion. For some families this is an annual joyous occasion; for others, this a yearly war. As happy genealogists, our goal is obviously to make it not only a joyous occasion, but a bountiful harvest of information as well.
