On the eve of Kazakhstan's Independence Day a festival "The history of my family is the history of my motherland" was held in the Library of the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

"The Kazakh people have always paid special attention to family ties, belonging to the family, always remembered and honored their ancestors. All these principles were laid down from the cradle and with the course of life were brought up in each member of the family and clan, being passed down from generation to generation. It is good that even now these traditions have not been lost. The role of a family is very important not only for the formation of a harmonious personality but also for the development of society and the State as a whole. As K.K. Tokayev said, a strong and happy family is the basis of the well-being and prosperity of our country," said Botagoz Kaipova, Deputy Director of the Library of the First President, opening the event. 

During the festival, the stories of their families and the family genealogical tree "zheti ata" were presented by the pupils of six kindergartens No. 5, 54, 56, 62, 82, 86. They were helped by their parents as well as the older generation. Families of the contestants presented their genealogy in the form of pictures and panels, video clips and theatrical skits.
