Typically thought of as the month in which children extort candy from their neighbors and as the opening of Pumpkin Spice Latte season, October is also Family History Month.

You might think that nothing interesting has ever happened to your family but that might be a mistake. History is more than just a collection of facts and dates, wars and treaties, and unpronounceable names. All that history was made by real people – our ancestors.
