Do you know of a Boy Scout that needs help earning the Genealogy Merit Badge? Possibly you are in an area where there isn't much opportunity to earn this badge? On January 17, 2015, the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah will be presenting a Boy Scout Genealogy Merit Badge Workshop. It is 90 minutes long and you will need to register at least one week prior to this workshop. Call 801-240-4673 for more information!

Our family has created some fun traditions over the years:
We do the traditional scripture reading.
When the kids were little, we acted out the nativity scene.
We have Christmas stockings and a tree. The tree is decorated with many ornaments that the kids have made over the years!
We always participate in our neighborhood food drive for the food bank.
For our Christmas dinner, we choose and prepare food from different countries.
We send Christmas cards.
We take lots of pictures.
We call family members that don't live close to us.
We used to bake Christmas cookies until I finally admitted that I don't like to bake. Some years my husband does the cookies now and some years we do without!
This year we created a family cookbook. Hopefully my kids will open it and at least look at the family history pictures.
At the moment, our favorite tradition is creating photo books for each of our grandkids. They are priceless and the grandkids love to see themselves through the past year. Desktop publishing has become so easy and affordable that my husband looks forward to creating the books every year.
As you can see, there are many, many ways to create family traditions. The list above is just a sampling of our family traditions. For more ideas, see these Christmas Ideas from FamilySearch!
