Some students with the ancestry projects Eighth graders connect with the past for ancestry project
Eighth graders at Walton Central School had the chance to connect and learn about generations of their family history during a month-long project in Melissa Grossman’s social studies class.

The 70 students recently completed a three-part family history project as part of their studies of immigration, which is a required topic in the New York State social studies standards for 8th grade.
 
Using resources available through the popular genealogy website Ancestry.com, along with obituaries from local funeral homes such as Courtney Funeral Home in Walton, information from the Walton Historical Society and local history enthusiast Richard Grossmann, family documents, oral histories, photographs, and ship manifests from the Statue of Liberty- Ellis Island Foundation, students traced their heritage with the goal of finding their immigrant ancestors. 

Access to Ancestry.com was provided free to the students via a grant.
