HSP has a new document display on view! The current display, “Up A Tree”, provides you with images and information on family history documents found in HSP’s archives, including a family tree of Benjamin Franklin’s family. If you haven’t thought about it already, the exhibit will surely instigate a personal desire to dig into your own ancestral past. If you are in the Philadelphia area, why not plan a trip or project for you and your students to delve into their most relevant history, that of our own families? ”Up A Tree” is on view until April 18th.
Hosting another Ancestry Day at the Philadelphia Convention Center, HSP offers the perfect jumpstart on your genealogical research with a series of presentations and classes that are sure to answer all your questions concerning genealogy. Register now to attend.
As one of the largest family history centers in the United States, and in a pivotal partnership with ancestry.com, HSP provides an exceptional resource. It houses records and documents from every state east of the Mississippi. Students may create family trees as a class project, or construct a family tree of one of the nation’s forefathers.
Genealogy may be the most meaningful storyteller of history, as it's history in the most personal context.
