History Teacher Creates 20-Week Genealogy Challenge

Posted on: October 16, 2017
20 Week Genealogy Challenge

Milford High School history teacher Anna O'Neill has launched a 20-week genealogy challenge designed to inspire students, staff, and community of Milford to explore their own history. The challenge started on October 16, 2017.

"Many of my students have asked how to begin the process of investigating their genealogy. They are unaware of the free resources available to them," Mrs. O'Neill shared. "My goal will be to provide one simple challenge each week to help students dig into their history."

For each of the 20 weeks, Mrs. O'Neill will:
-Share a challenge to help a personal history search.
-Give instruction on how to accomplish the challenge.
-Provide resources for the challenge.
-Share her own experiences.

You can follow the challenge and participate by subscribing to Mrs. O'Neill's blog at curioushistoryteacher.com, following on Instagram (@curioushistoryteacher), or following on Twitter (@curioushistori1).
