We’ve been noticed! Recently, Saving Memories Forever was mentioned over at the Saturday Evening Post in an article entitled Treasuring Memories about family history and the importance of capturing family stories as part of your research. You can read the entire story here.
The author, Iyna Caruso, mentions that the holidays are a perfect time to get families to discuss family history and tell the stories that matter:
“. . . an ideal time to bring a family tree to life, it’s during the holidays, the traditional and sometimes only occasions, when multiple generations gather. Reminiscing about the good old days comes naturally.”
Resources for Family Stories
As a companion to the article, Caruso also lists a variety of different resources that can be used to not only research a family’s roots but also to capture its stories. Click here for the list of resources which mentions Saving Memories Forever:
Prompt young children to be the interviewers. Their innocent questions and true wonder about the mysteries of that hard-to-imagine time before they were born can open up reticent elders to share stories they might never share with another adult. Encourage one of the younger family members to record stories using a video camera or smartphone.
