At RootsTech 2016, Lisa Louise Cooke took a few moments to chat with her daughter, Lacey Cooke, a recent addition to the Genealogy Gems team. Lacey grew up hearing her mom’s family history stories but never appeared to be “bitten by the bug” in the same way her mom was. Now that she’s a little older and taking more interest, Lacey responds to all those childhood stories and offers some advice to other genealogists.

Lacey tips for reaching millennials and the next generations:
- Bait us with something cool we can discover more about on our own.
- Keep it short. Tell us one short, interesting story at a time.
- Don’t give up! We are listening, even if we don’t act like it.
