Seniors Activities - How About Genealogy?

Caregivers looking for activities for seniors might see if they are interested in genealogy. Remembering life history, creating a family tree, and researching the family history and ancestors can be good mental exercise and interesting.

People of all ages enjoy life history and genealogy but seniors sometimes especially enjoy looking back at favorite memories and comparing what life was like when they grew up to what it is like now.

San Luis Obispo Genealogy meets on the first Saturday of each month. There are genealogy groups all over the world and people can join one in their area or find many groups and instructional websites.

The schedule on the website shows that some of the upcoming topics include researching in the SlO Genealogy Library and a presentation titled "You Will Never Look at Your Photo the Same Way Again - Using Forensics to Dig Out All the Clues in Your Unidentified Photos".

The meetings are free, open to the public, and include social time and snacks.
