A Fun Way to Involve Children in Genealogy and History

Posted by on

U.S. President Grover Cleveland unveiled the new Statue of Liberty on October 28, 1886. Millions of immigrants have seen this important landmark on their way to a new life in America and have written histories about their arrival and about their families.

A celebration will be held on October 28, 2006 to commemorate the 120th birthday of the Statue of Liberty. The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation is sponsoring a Statue of Liberty Picture Contest for elementary school-aged children. It’s a fun and creative way to involve kids in genealogy and history. The contest starts on Thursday, 12 October 2006 and ends on Wed, 31 Jan 2007.
