Rooted In Change – A Timeline
This timeline encourages family members to recall the stories, events, and messages handed down from previous generations by asking themselves questions such as: who are the characters in my family history? What world events comprised the backdrop of their lives? What choices did they make in light of those events? What choices am I making today? How are my choices rooted in history and change?

Notice how peoples' actions respond to the issues of the day. How are you responding to today's needs?
