Any time you talk about what it means to be a part of your family, you strengthen the connection to family and what the family stands for. Knowing where each other comes from can help each of you learn from and appreciate each other’s family stories. Talk to each other about your families and the legacies.
You might talk about
- Proud moments and regrettable moments in family history
- Family values and traits that have been passed through the generations
- How and when different people in the family history came to America
- more questions in the guide
Note: The objective is to share where you come from. Definitely not to compare whose ancestry is better or more important. Focus more on the people in the stories than the lineage.
