Summary
This day is an opportunity to reflect and appreciate our ancestors' lives.

Ancestor Appreciation Day comes up on September 27th every year. It is a holiday dedicated to all families around the country. Whether big or small, every family is encouraged to make the most of this unique day. Activities consist of gathering together to recount ancient family histories and all trace down our genealogies. 

From Census.gov, Ancestry refers to a person’s ethnic origin or descent, “roots,” or heritage, or the place of birth of the person or the person’s parents or ancestors before their arrival in the United States. Some ethnic identities, such as “German” or “Jamaican,” can be traced to geographic areas outside the United States, while other ethnicities, such as “Pennsylvania Dutch” or “Cajun,” evolved in the United States.

According to Chase's Calendar of Events, the day was created by William and Helen Chase, and is sponsored by the Ancestor Appreciation Day Association in Ann Arbor, MI.
