Tidbits about genealogy come from all sorts of places, expected and unexpected. I just read an article by Nancy Parode, a Baltimore homeschooling examiner. She published it at examiner.com.
Nancy covers a variety of topics from necessary research skills, to penmanship, to getting children interested in the study of their ancestors (the article may give you some ideas on how to stimulate interest about genealogy in your own family). Her perspective is rather unique, but that is what is so appealing about it.
