Add Some Family History to Your Holiday Meal with Ancestry Thanksgiving Memories
I love this time of year when I’m able to get together with family, whether it is Thanksgiving, Christmas or a meal with no special occasion. Sometimes it isn’t easy to start a conversation about family history, especially when it involves loved ones who have passed. This Thanksgiving, Ancestry has created a special landing page on its site entitled Thanksgiving Memories: “Capture old memories. Make new ones. Make the holiday season even more special with a few fun and easy ideas to bring your family together. They’re a great way to spend valuable time together and a chance to record precious memories new and old.”
Ancestry has come up with a great tool this year: a series of place cards for the Thanksgiving table it calls “10 Questions to Bring the Family Together.”
These name cards can be printed on heavy stock card paper*, cut and trimmed, and then folded in half. Write the guest’s name on one side and place on the table. Each person’s name should face out and the guest should see the question or conversation prompt facing towards them.

*NOTE: consider using a local FedEx Office or Staples to have your place cards printed. You can send the file via email or their website and even have them delivered!
