Links! Links! Links Galore!

Project Idea: Get a map and put it on the wall, and trace the different family names (grandparents) to where they moved in the U.S. For example, start with yourself and put a pin in the place where you were born, then do the same for your parents, then your grandparents (use different colors of thread for each new surname), and so on. You can see exactly where you came from.

(Hint: I found some of these state archives records by googling them. If you know where your ancestors came from, you can google "New York State Records," for example, and see what pops up. I've also had success by googling the names of my ancestors - the ones not named "John Smith.")
