Summer museum getaways

What was life like for your ancestors? It's easy to slot those folks and their BMD data into our ancestral database without thinking about the life they had. Things have changed so much it sometimes seems as if my childhood in England is what's found today in a museum. That's even more true for previous generations.

Take the time to get away from the computer and visit a museum or two. I've added yellow markers to show Ottawa area museums on my Family History in Ottawa map . Or just Google your community name and the word museum.
