As the mother of an 18 year-old, getting him interested in genealogy, family history research and the results of this research has been difficult to say the least. I have some tips on how to make genealogy engaging for young people in order to get them interested and eventually pass the baton to the next generation. This includes information on using social media, video and images to pique the interest of younger people and tips on how to get them interested and involved in researching.

I am an Australian/French woman, living in the UK, who has been doing genealogy since the age of 15 (so almost 25 years now). I am currently studying a Postgraduate Diploma in Genealogy, Palaeography and Heraldry with the University of Strathclyde.
