Here is an email that we received today.  It is exciting to see that our youth are getting interested in genealogy and finding their past.

Hi, I thought I'd take a quick moment to send you some positive feedback. I volunteer with the library and we recently started up a Junior Genealogy Club on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The children are researching their family trees, and are using their research skills to ask questions and be history detectives. It's been a big hit so far and the kids really seem to enjoy it. We asked some of the older children to help us put together some resources to get a better understanding of the basics. Your NWS Genealogy page has been a huge help so we wanted to reach out as a group and let you know how much we appreciate it.

As a thank you, one of the kids helping me compile resources, Becca, suggested that I pass another article your way, "The History of Ellis Island" at https://www.yourlawyer.com/library/new-york-city-history-ellis-island/ . She thought it could be a helpful addition to the other genealogy resources on your page. It talks about Ellis Island's significance, how to find and read passenger records, and why it's a helpful place to look for those studying ancestry and genealogy. Becca actually found it herself and thought it'd be nice to send to you as a way of saying thank you for all your help. If you do decide to add her suggestion we have a meeting tomorrow afternoon and I'd love to let her know. I know she'd be so proud.

Thanks again,

Denise, Becca, & The Lyndhurst Junior Genealogy Club
