We just completed a special project in the San Francisco office today … putting together back-to-school kits consisting of pens, pencils, highlighters, post-its, and binders for 6th graders at Visitacion Valley Middle School.

Special project today in the San Francisco office ... fulfilling back to school kits for 6th graders at Visitacion Valley Middle School.

It is one of the many ways tries to give back to the various communities we serve, online – and off.

We wish the students of Visitacion Valley Middle School a wonderful and productive school year. Who knows, maybe one of them might use one of these pens to start capturing their own family history. It is never too young to start!

    Sorry Ancestry for the comments from people lime the above ” rose Cain” but we will have to consider the source especially since she can’t even spell right ( site, not sight). Keep doing goodness. Love when giving back, especially to the children.
