Everyone has stories to share
I have a passion for story telling. Three experiences have driven my interest to record personal histories. First, I was deaf or hard of hearing my first 13 years and that gave me the gift of cherishing the ability to communicate. Second, I grew up in a family that did not talk or share much information about past generations. Third, I became a Grandmother to grandsons that live far away. I wanted a way to share my stories beyond the distance of miles and time because they are too young to immediately understand or need that knowledge yet.
One day your great-great-great grandchild will want to know about you
If you don’t write down your stories, all your history is completely lost in three generations.
I promise to treat you and your history with respect, honesty, sincerity and confidentiality.
I know whole heartedly that you will find this endeavor well worth your time and energy. You will be documenting your personal legacy worthy of passing down through the ages.
