This weeks roundup reminds us how important it is to get the stories down while there’s still time and some thoughts on the best ways to accomplish that.

Dawn M. Roode of Modern Heirloom Books shares a personal experience of not getting the stories down in Notes From a Funeral.

“Reflections from a funeral on remembrance and grief. Sharing memories about lost loved ones can be healing but why don’t we honor our families through story sharing now?” (continued)

 

Sarah White of True Stories Well Told reminds us about self-expression in Don’t Forget to Write!
 
“The desire for self-expression is hardwired into us humans, it would seem–as this beech tree in southern Indiana bears evidence!” (continued)
 
Ellie Kahn of Living Legacies Family Histories gives us the first in a series of posts celebrating Personal History Awareness Month in How to Record Your Family’s Story.
 
“Years ago, when my friend and I were at Juniors and couldn’t get a table, we would sit at the counter, which of course means having lunch with the stranger next to you.” (continued)
