National Genealogy Day
National Genealogy Day is held on March 9 of this year. It is an annual celebration observed on the Saturday of the First Full Week of Every March. There are people who are researching hard to find more about their genealogy. Of course, not all of us know from whom, where, and which family we have come from. Few knew their grandparents and great-grandparents, but beyond this, it is quite doubtful. So it is very much essential to know about your ancestors who lived some several decades ago and their life history in detail. National Genealogy Day is the best time for anyone to trace the history of your family, ancestors, and your heritage. Dig out that unknown information to find more interesting details and facts about your family history.
“We live in a society that celebrates familial connection above any other kind of relationship. We are shown photos of our great-grandparents and encouraged to marvel over facial similarities. We are told to take pride in our bloodlines, celebrate our ancestry.” – Lynn Coady

How to Celebrate National Genealogy Day
The best way to celebrate National Genealogy Day is to start finding details about your family history. Find and research your root of origin and share it with others in your family. You will sure be getting so much of interesting, funny, or shocking information and details. As it is the best chance to know about your ancestors, you can, on the other hand, make a note of your genealogy to share them with the future generations. There are lots of genealogy apps available and you could even use any of it to save the data in the form of the family tree. Encourage people around you to research about their family history and know them. Share your family history or family tree photos on the social media using the hashtag #GenealogyDay.
