Send the Tree Chart to Everyone
Whether you are in-charge of this reunion or not, don’t forget to create a list of addresses whom you have invited to the event. Mail or e-mail them at least three generation map to fill and bring along to the reunion. In case, any of your relative is unable to make it to your event, ask them to mail/e-mail you the map. The reason behind this family map is that you can use this information to know more about your relatives and how even they are related to you.
Ask Everyone to Bring their Old Photos
You never know who is going to have the precious photo of ancestors you never met or see. You also never know which photograph can help you to recognize an unknown ancestor in your family pictures. Oh! And don’t forget to keep a scanner at the place because people might want to keep the pictures of each other’s ancestors for the sake of symbol of love.
Ask Everyone to Send you Family Recipes
Food is that one aspect, which everyone seeks interest in. Or, you can say – Laughter is brightest when the food is BEST. To cook scrumptious food at this happening event, ask everyone to send you their family recipes. You can cook everyone’s family recipes and make them feel like home. Also, they will be overwhelmed by seeing traditional food on the table.
Plan the Reunion where Common Ancestors Lived
Nothing is better than planning family reunion where the common ancestors once used to live. And if any of your relatives are still living at that place, they will happily be welcome you to reconnect with everyone. Moreover, you can take a trip to the community hall, church, park, or even the entire town with your relatives where all your ancestors used to visit most often.
There you are! All set to bring families together and reconnect the old strings of love.
These tips are going to give you memorable moments with your relatives and they will remember this union for years.
