GEM:  Birthday Alarm
Ideas for Strengthening Your Family Using Birthday Alarm

  1. Enter ancestor birthdays into Birthday Alarm to help you make note of it in your family blog, or family newsletter.
  2. Use it as a prompt to send a an email to a list of contacts that you've worked with over the years to research that ancestor.
  3. Use the ancestor"s birthday alarm to generate a dinner time conversation about that ancestor on their special day.  Display a photo on the table, tell stories about them, and teach you children about the history of that side of your family.
