Family Heritage Series from Robert Welch University

When the Family Heritage Series first appeared in 1973, it was described as "a weekly discussion of Americanist truths and traditions for those 'heirs of all ages' who will have to preserve that most important inheritance of all -- freedom."  The series had several objectives:

  1. To fill a serious gap in teaching sound American history unbiased by socialist, anti-American spins.
  1. Give parents an opportunity to impart positive values to their children.
  1. Promote family unity, loyalty, and respect.

In later years, many who had been introduced to the series in the 70's have expressed an interest in gaining access to these lessons. RWU is happy to make them easily available to all via the Internet.
