Geneaolgy Project For Boston 400

Did you know that 10% of the population of Boston emigrated to America in the early 1600s?

That means there could be hundreds of thousands of Americans who originate from Boston…

Also, as a port, Boston’s own population will be very diverse from all those who came through the port and settled over hundreds of years.

We need to a genealogy project that can work in the schools to highlight how diverse Boston has always been, how instrumental Boston was in the development of modern American and how communities working together can achieve so much.

Work in partnership with a genealogy company, schools and local history groups to deliver.

  1. I think this is a fantastic idea. I think that Boston is an amazing town and yet so few people know about its incredible history and what makes us so different and so special. It would be great to see anything in schools that enabled these differences to be celebrated and give the town and especially our young Bostonians the opportunity to feel proud again among such negative press. Jane Keightley’s horrible history tours for youngsters is a brilliant idea, and maybe something similar could be rolled out as a cool and interesting workshop in our secondary schools? Perhaps to coincide with school exchanges with Boston USA?
