project for 5th graders (2006)
Via an internet webquest, to be found on the
school-website, the children found out many different
facts about (the history of) their own family names. For
the questions to be answered they had a
pre-designed form in 'word'.
After this introduction into the history of names and
genealogy the class visited the Regional Archives in
Alkmaar where all old documentation of their own
community is being stored.
The children were led on a tour
through the collection and were then able to find (more
or less independently) data on their own ancestors and
make copies of these.
NB: Materials only available in Dutch!
