CURATING ARTIFACTS

If you are attending one of our educational activities, copy the link above and paste it in your web browser. This will bring you to a worksheet provided by the U.S. National Archives.

 

Please print the blank worksheet, and bring it along with a new or old object to our activity. Choose a piece that represents, directly or indirectly, the ethnic community that you are studying.

 

Where specified, we will host events that challenge you to see how well you are able to trace your family roots [see direct descendant genogram (family tree) below]. Most Americans can name all of their grandparents, but few can name all of their great-grandparents.
