Discovering Your Roots

When: Sun., Sept. 13, 12-4 p.m. 2015

Grandparent’s Day coincides with Free Second Sunday at the Institute of Texan Cultures, and the museum has prepared programming to make the most out of this annual observance. Representatives from the San Antonio Library Texana and Genealogy Department and Texas Gravestone Studies representatives will guide visitors through the processes of discovering their family tree. Children will become history investigators, creating a journal of family stories from their parents and grandparents comparing life when they were young to today. For those visiting the ITC’s living history exhibit, the “Back 40,” museum guides will offer tours of the five period buildings, an overview on gardening, and a fun “Pack Your Family Trunk” activity.
