Branch Out During Family History Month with Your Local Library Branch

Family History Month at the Jacksonville Public Library

Even though the trees don’t change much in the Florida fall, your family tree is always growing and changing. Family History Month was created to bring the human race closer together. Although we all have our nuclear family, we are also a part of the human family. As you take some time this month to compile family photos or ask a relative about their favorite family memories, search for the similarities you can find that branch out from the family tree of the human race. We are all searching for our sense of identity and taking time to get your whole family involved will give you a stronger sense of what family means.
