A fun way to engage a younger family member in genealogy is to show that those ancient ancestors were once babies and kids. Animoto makes it really easy to create a quick video photo montage with music and titles, like the one I posted here. I admit I had way too much fun finding music and just watching the photos come together! I first encountered Animoto as an educator when I saw teachers engaging students with music and powerful images.
