badge cards need to be properly and fully filled out before coming to the workshop. REQUIRED WORK OUTSIDE OF WORKSHOP: Choice of # 2a or 2b, with 3 and 4b. They

include doing 2a: a life timeline on themselves or a family member (but this could be done the day of the workshop); 4b: obtaining a genealogical document (birth, marriage or death

certificate or church record: baptismal, communion or confirmation record) for themselves or a family member and bring it with them or a photocopy (preferably-to avoid the loss of the

document) and 3. Interviewing an older family member (Grandmother, Grandfather, Great Aunt or Uncle, etc.) about his or her life. Similarities and differences from now & then.

NOTE: This is a fun and relatively easy merit badge that could be used as the family project of the required portion of the Family Life merit badge. It can involve the whole family in

a day of fun and exploration of your families past, present and future.
