National Roots Day - December 23


National Roots Day is observed annually on December 23 across the United States.

National Roots Day encourages us to look into our heritage, families, family history, and ancestry.  Collecting information about family roots is made easier when families are gathered together during the holiday season.  It is entirely possible a grandparent, parent, aunt or uncle has already started a family tree and will share with other family members.  

It is often interesting to learn about the lives of our ancestors; where they came from, their struggles, their accomplishments.  It is a combination of everyone on the family tree that helps to make the person we are today.


Look into your own family’s roots and use #NationalRootsDay to post on social media.
