Family Ties at Quincy House

Massachusetts: Metro Boston


Everyone has a history worth recording. Family Ties provides students with the tools to tell their stories. During their visit, students learn about Eliza Susan Quincy, who documented her family’s history using a variety of methods. Students learn how to conduct oral history interviews, examine historical documents, objects, and photographs, and design a personal monogram. Back in the classroom, students apply these techniques to make family albums that chronicle their own families' pasts and record daily lives.
