Roots Day is a day to celebrate your history and your ancestors. These days, many people don’t know much about where they came from or who their distant relatives are. But learning about these things can help you to better understand yourself and your family. What better time to learn about your ancestry than during the holidays when you are surrounded by family from near and far? Talk to your relatives to learn what they know about your family history and for the things they don’t know, you can spend time researching and piecing information together as a family.
