Some of the common responses to this question included time and distance constraints, no interest from the children, and short attention spans of the children. Several respondents also mentioned that it is difficult for them to engage children in family history when their parents have no interest.
This is simply the raw data; obviously, I will analyze it a little more to determine how certain responses correlate with each person's role in the genealogical community and their relationships with children.
Thank you to all who participated in the survey! The results will help me develop new and engaging activities that (hopefully) those of you in the genealogical community will want to use to teach young people about their family histories. (If you have not yet participated in the survey, you still can. Just click this link to be directed to the survey.)
