A 21 day experiment exploring the benefits

of daily connections with

family past & present


It started during the world-wide pandemic by a group of family historians. They collaborated and decided to measure the psychological benefits of increasing family connections during times of crisis, stress, or even personal struggles. Introducing a 21 Day Family Connections Experiment, a family history project inviting you to increase your connections with family past and present for a consecutive 21 days. Measuring the results with both a pre-experiment and post-experiment survey.  Join now with the thousands who have participated and benefited from this experiment, so that you too can experience the benefits!

In all of us there is a hunger, marrow deep, to know our heritage – to know who we are and where we have come from.
