Sharing Memories

 
I'm excited to announce Sharing Memories prompts are now published in an ebook Writing Your Memoirs For Descendants: Prompts for Recording & Preserving Your Family Stories and Memories

Many new prompts have been added to this book. My weekly Sharing Memories prompts began in December 2009 and ended last week with a total of almost 200 prompts designed to jog memories of childhood experiences and stories. 

I encourage my readers who want to preserve family memories and stories to continue their weekly writing and recording. If we don't record our memories they will be lost within a few generations.

P.S. you do  not need a Kindle to read this ebook. You can read it on the Amazon Kindle Cloud reader (free) or the Kindle App (also free)



We all want to find information on our ancestors and are overjoyed to find an ancestor’s diary or journal. But what about our own memoirs? It's important as genealogists that we not forget about writing our own story.

We may think writing about ourselves is boring or egotistical but stop and think how excited your descendants would be to find a journal or dairy that their great great grandmother (you) wrote.

52 Weeks of Sharing Memories will guide you in writing your own genealogical journal. Every Sunday I  post a topic and write about my own memories. Prompts in the form of questions are provided to assist you in writing your own Sharing Memories journal. Make it public or private, it's your choice!
