Youth Genealogy Book Published
When Evie overhears her parents talking about their family tree, she considers whether they mean the holly, the sugar maple, the magnolia or the oak. Follow the story of how Evie defines what her family tree means to her. Designed specifically for children, Evie Finds Her Family Tree, is an inspired exploration of what being a part of a family really means.
This simple introduction to genealogy from the IHS Press helps children begin to understand the connections that families share and how, although unique individuals, each family member links to one another.
The book was written by Ashley Ransburg, an Indianapolis, Indiana, elementary school teacher who developed a passion for art and creative writing at an early age and has always loved finding out about her own family history.
Evie Finds Her Family Tree is 30 pages, includes a pull-out family tree poster, and is available at the Society’s Basile History Market gift store and at bookstores throughout Indiana in hard cover for $14.95. IHS members receive a 10% discount on the book when purchasing directly from the Basile History Market. To order, call (800) 447-1830 or order online at the History Market.
