The prompts in Sharing Family Stories and Memories will guide you and help jog your memory. Have fun and start writing!

It is important as genealogists that we not forget about writing our own story. Finding an ancestor diary is a huge thrill. But what about our own memories and stories? We need to preserve them for future generations.

I invite you to begin your personal genealogy journey. Start your own journal and write your stories. Use the prompts in this book to jog your memory or guide you. Write daily or weekly or monthly, but write!
