Ancestor Squares - FHTL part 5

BYU Family History Lab's Ancestor Squares is an interactive game in which you merge colored squares containing your own relative's names.

After I got used to the game play, I began to understand the relationships of the names on the screen. Each color represents a couple. Once merged the child of that couple's name appears and the color of the square changes. As you merge the squares you descend your family tree until you are left with your own name. This is a fun an interactive way to become familiar with the names and the relationships your own relatives. Is there a better way to learn than by playing?

I am excited to see where this application and others with the same intent take us in the pursuit of learning about out Family History.
