Welcome! My name is Emily Kowalski Schroeder and I am the creator and author of the Growing Little Leaves blog. After working as a scientist, I made the decision to suspend my career and stay at home with my children on a full-time basis. I soon became an avid genealogical researcher, and began looking for age-appropriate ways in which to engage my young children in learning their family's history. Somewhat dismayed by the lack of family history education options for younger children (toddlers through elementary age), I decided to develop my own genealogy education activities for my children and share them with others via my blog, Growing Little Leaves.
In 2014, Growing Little Leaves entered into a partnership with the Indiana Historical Society to develop and implement quality history, heritage, and genealogy programming for children and their caretakers.
Growing Little Leaves is a proud supporter of The NextGen Genealogy Network, a nonprofit group whose mission is to 'foster the next generation's interest in family history.'
