Which would you enjoy most with your family during a family reunion?
1. Playing a new game
2. Eating a new food, trying a new restaurant
3. Taking pictures together
4. Getting to know each other’s stories better
5. Making keepsakes to remember the occasion

No "family reunions" for me unless you want to see the police, national guard, ATF and other groups breaking up the fighting. Not sorry about it either as it seems to run in the family history. Best if some things are left taboo.

When the Kelly triplets were just 4 days old, their mother died from complications of the birth. Almost three years later, their father was shot. The triplets and their older sister were divided up among living relatives. The triplets have reunited 60 years later and are trying to discover their family history.

Some name their cars after heroes, pets, or celebrities and then take “ol’ Jezabel” around the country. Did you name your first car? How did you pick the car’s name? Do you remember the name of the car you first toured the country in?

During Black History Month, The Times published dozens of never-before-seen photographs of various people, inviting readers to submit their own unpublished images of black history. Now they are inviting students to answer how much they know about their own family history by responding to the following questions on an interactive site:
— What do you know about your family’s history? How did you learn it?
— Do you have a parent, grandparent, or relative who likes to tell stories about the past?
— Do you have any old family photos? Do they reveal anything interesting or surprising about your family?
— Describe one particular photo that says something about your family’s history.
Do you have any old family photos? Do they reveal anything interesting or surprising about your family?

Swimming with Mom! Do you have memories like this?

I sure do have memories of this. Mom was a water baby; every sunny summer day right after lunch, we (mom, myself and two sisters) would walk to Seaside Park in Bridgeport, CT (app. two miles each way!) and spend the better part of the afternoon there! Great fun and memories. Last week, family from out of state visited and we spent a couple of afternoons at the beach. Grandson (15 years) and his twin couldn't hide their glee when viewing the ocean - jumped right in and spent at least 1 1/2 hours jumping the waves and swimming. That also brought back memories to me.

Used Google back in my college days. Happy to see the techniques I learned used for family history as well. It cleared up a few of the countless mysteries surrounding my lineage!

Do you have a tradition of going to your grandparents’ home for Sunday dinner? Wayne Amos, who has fond memories of eating at his grandparents' house each Sunday, says “the house” (as it became known in the family) represents much more to him. 
Wayne Amos’ grandparents’ house was always the gathering place for Sunday dinner — his grandmother, Hilda Labbe Voorhies made an unforgettable chicken fricassee — and family get-togethers, he said, but

Though quilting was in her DNA, when Roberta Farmer was growing up, tied-top quilts were made not for art, but out of necessity. Farmer was raised in a small town with gravel roads—she didn’t see a "hardtop" road until she was a senior in high school. When she was nearly 40, she turned to the craft and art of quilting as a hobby and is now an award-winning quilter with around 100 handmade quilts under her belt. What hobby do you share with your ancestors?
