01/24/2013 Shafron, Jane Residents tell stories of hardship, inspiration  (Byline: Suzanne Sproul)
IN BRIEF: Review of Your Story Here documentary "Here I Am: Extraordinary Lives in the Inland Empire."
  Inland Valley Daily Bulletin
    SUMMARY: Story on the benefit of personal history and how Your Story Here interviewed 12 local residents aged 64 and older as part of Chaffey College's Wignall Museum's exhibition "When I'm Sixty-Four". From the interviews Your Story Here created a documentary called "Here I Am: Extraordinary Lives in the Inland Empire". In the documentary we meet Pat Yeates who grew up in poverty in Pittsburgh but escaped through dance and the Ice Capades; Gordon Ayers who got married and was then sent to fight in the Pacific in WWII for two years. And, Fred Roccatini who grew up in Italy and owes his life to a German tank commander who saved his life. For Mary Martha Barkley the experience was sheer fun. "I enjoyed the opportunity to reflect on my past," she said. Chaffey College Professor Baccus uses the documentary in her gerontology class. Personal historian Jane Shafron encourages everyone to preserve their story for their family. Reference is made to the Association of Personal Historians.   Distribution/Location

12/12/2011 Shafron, Jane My Turn: Saving a life, for those left behind  (Byline: Peter Shafron)
IN BRIEF: Jane Shafron's own cancer diagnosis led her to want to preserve memories of her father for her own children.
  Los Angeles Times
    SUMMARY: Personal historian Jane Shafron writes a first person account of how she left her career as an attorney to become a video biographer after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. "Diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer in 2005, my first reaction was to learn my father's story. If anything bad should happen to me, I figured, my husband could tell our young sons about their mother. But only I could tell my sons about their grandfather, who passed away nine years earlier. I spent a lot of the six months after my diagnosis reminiscing about my life and my father's. With the help of my husband, who was pleased I had a hobby (if not hair), I made a documentary about dad's life. He would not be a stranger to his grandsons."   Column/Show
