Document Your Family History
Do You Have Older Living Relatives? Interview them at the earliest opportunity. Document their irreplaceable "Library" of knowledge concerning your family history. Don't look back some day, having thought you had all the time in the world, only to realize you didn't. Then, share the Knowledge. As our elders grow older, we must encourage them to again tell the old old stories that make us laugh until tears run, or cry sweet tears of remembrance. The voices that tell stories today are echoes of our loved ones who have come and gone before us. We must strive to document and tell the life-stories that will mean so much to our descendants. Write your history, including life events that may seem trivial to you now, but will be a priceless treasure to your loved ones. Save, protect and share these stories with your family.
