Thomasville-- The Thomasville Genealogical History and Fine Arts Library hosted a day camp for kids this week.  Campers explored different time periods through activities such as this Civil War encampment.

Organizers hope it will spark a lifelong interest in history for the kids. Kathy Mills, the Library's Director said, "Its important to know where you came from and know who you're grandparents and great grandparents are. So we're really hoping this week will stir some interest and they will come back and continue to study their family."

The camp taught children how to trace their own family roots. They studied their family's country of origin and family crests.
