Yesterday I spotted an article online called Writing down family histories as Baby Boomers look back
I love anything that inspires us to write our own memoirs! As a baby boomer myself I began jotting down my memories of childhood several years ago. So many of my readers seemed interested but didn't know how to start! So I set up a monthly Sharing Memories blog post - where I provided a prompt such as "Grandma's Cooking", shared my own memories of the topic, and encouraged my readers to join in.
This was intended to help genealogists overcome writer's block and get their own stories down permanently. You can see a few of the prompts on my Sharing Memories page
Now you can use my e-book Writing Your Memoirs For Descendants: Prompts for Recording & Preserving Your Family Stories and Memories (with over 100 prompts) to guide you on your journey. You do not need a Kindle to read this book.
You can read it on the Amazon Kindle Cloud reader (free) or the Kindle App (also free)
Don't wait. By setting aside a few minutes each week you can preserve your childhood and family memories to pass on to your children and grand-children.
Can you imagine how excited one of your descendants would be 100 years from now to read what you experienced, to learn about family members and events such as births, weddings and funerals? I know how thrilled I would be to find my great-grandmother's journal (or any ancestor's stories)
