Perhaps we should see more classes like this one. The following announcement was written by the West Valley Genealogical Society:
The West Valley Genealogical Society, 12222 N. 111th Ave., Youngtown, AZ, invites young people, ages 10-16, interested in learning about their family history and finding their ancestors, an opportunity to enroll in a four week Genealogy for Juniors Program. The class will include the Scouting requirements for a Genealogy or Family History badge. Scouting membership is not required.
The classes will meet four Mondays, June 4, 11, 25 and July 2 (no class on June 18), 10 a.m. to Noon. The classes are free; a $5 charge will cover supplies and a notebook providing proof of project completion.
WVGS will also offer a Junior Society membership for $20 for those wanting to continue their research.
The enrollment form and more details are available at the Society website: http://www.azwvgs.org or by calling 623 933-4945.
