Christmas Shopping at the IGSI Bookstore

“Is there a young person in your life (e.g., grandchild, niece, nephew) who’s expressed curiosity about your family history? Would you like to nurture that interest? The on-line IGSI bookstore has a special deal for you!”

Late in 2012, we posted an article with that lead paragraph. Unfortunately it was too late for people to take advantage of this special offer for holiday gift-giving. Since we still have a few of the books in stock, here’s the information again:

We have packaged together two books about family history written for kids. We’re offering both books for only $20!

Roots for Kids – A Genealogy Guide for Young People, 2nd Edition by Susan Provost Beller  (***** and $19.80 on

My Family Tree Workbook – Genealogy for Beginners by Rosemary A. Chorzempa (**** and $3.55 on

Roots for Kids is based on a course the author developed for her fourth grade class.  The book will teach youngsters how to create a simple family tree and give them both the tools and appetite to learn more about their roots and to uncover the stories and events that make them and their families unique.

My Family Tree Workbook is an enjoyable, easy-to-use introduction to genealogy designed specially for children ages 9 and up. The pages provide space to document information on paternal and maternal sides of the family and instructions on making a basic family tree and pedigree chart. The book also includes information on autographs, family tales, heraldry, geography, foreign languages, and much more.
What a great way to share your hobby and involve the next generation! This would be a great stocking-stuffer.  The two-volume set – available for only $20 – is found on page 30 of the bookstore website. Order now by clicking on this link:
