High school ROTC programs enjoy creating and ordering custom challenge coins. Because of the groups’ military ties, they recognize the significance and historic value of coins. Not only that, they recognize the fundraising potential of the items.

Custom challenge coins help boost morale and instill pride in ROTC members. Who doesn’t like to walk away from an experience with a memento that reminds them of the time they spent learning valuable skills. Custom coins are the type of keepsake item that people hold onto for years and years.

There are a number of different ways to customize coins. In fact, here are a few of the options you have to choose from:

• An unusual size or shape
• Decorative edges
• Cutouts
• Silkscreens
• Bottle opener mechanism
• Dual plating
• Sequential numbering

Challenge coins can have the school name and graduation year on them. They can even have the members’ names silkscreened onto them. Coins can even have a photograph included in their design. An epoxy dome will prevent the image from fading or peeling.

March 8th is Genealogy Day.  Has your historical society, county museum or ancestry website thought about what you want to do to celebrate the occasion?  No matter what you have planned, don’t forget to commemorate the event with a special memento.

Here are some fun facts about ancestry published by Family Tree Magazine in 2010:

  • In the early 1900s, lamination—now an archival no-no—was a celebrated new tool at repositories nationwide. Thousands of historical documents were laminated, including the Emancipation Proclamation. Find out how archives are working with these documents in the December 2010 Genealogy Insider column.
  • About 125,000 US troops, both Army regulars and new volunteers, served in the Philippine Insurrection from 1899 to 1902. The 1900 US census has information on military personnel stationed in the Philippines, Cuba and Puerto Rico.
  • The Washington State Digital Archives holds more than 90 million records, with 28 million searchable online. Find more state genealogy resources in our guide to 75 of the best state sites for genealogy research (also online).
  • The Irish National Museum has a firkin of butter buried in a peat bog (once a common storage practice) in the late-17th or eary-18th century. The grayish substance no longer resembles butter. Brush up on butter in the December 2010 History Matters column.
  • Some 250,000 Scots-Irish are thought to have arrived in the United States between 1717 and the American Revolution, with later waves in the 1740s, around 1754, and between 1771 and 1775. Many headed for central Pennsylvania, the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, and the Carolinas, eventually migrating into and across the Appalachians.

People can take an active stance in preserving their own family’s history.  By keeping written accounts of their days and protecting important documents, men, women, and children help future generations learn more about their ancestors and the time period in which they lived.  This information can be very helpful.

Custom Lapel Pins Grab People’s Attention

Custom lapel pins are just that.  They’re the type of item that people respond well to.  People are proud of the family origins, heritage, and accomplishments.  They want to celebrate their ancestor’s births, marriages, anniversaries, and other notable life events.  That’s why they’ll wear their pins with pride.  It will open the door to many conversations about the past.

Host a Genealogy Class and Offer Custom Lapel Pins to Participants

Educate adults on the importance of keeping documents accurate and safe.  Prepare for changes in technology by offering to print and laminate important things like copies of birth and death certificates, marriage licenses, and letters of correspondence.
