“Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.”
– from the “The Wonder Years”
Remembering and sharing individual life stories makes history come alive. History becomes personal. It’s no longer just the dry facts about the depression; it’s the living breathing details of how your family survived it. It’s not just the significant dates and facts about the battles in the war; it’s about the role your father or grandfather or uncle played in that war. It’s personal.
Capturing and saving your family stories in a book, audio or video creates a living legacy for generations to come. These stories help families understand their roots and learn from the struggles and accomplishments that made their ancestors who they were. The faces in the photographs come alive, along with the individual dreams and hopes and personalities.
Everyone has a story to tell!
Whether it is focused on one individual’s life, a particular event or period of time or a family history, a personal history project can be crafted to fit your personal budget.
