This week we are celebrating the publication of Sunny Jane Morton’s new book, Story of My Life – A Workbook for Preserving Your Legacy by F&W Media, publishers of Family Tree Magazine.
“Record the stories of your life–or a loved one’s–for posterity! The Story of My Life workbook makes it easy: Simply follow the prompts to preserve memories from your entire life. The book includes sections on parents, siblings, childhood, high school, career and adulthood. There’s also space to note vital statistics about yourself and immediate family members as a genealogical record.
A great gift for your children to learn about their parents’ lives or the jumping-off point for writing a memoir, the Story of My Life workbook will help you preserve your memories for generations to come.”
Excerpt: Sample Tips
Here are some tips you’ll find in the Story of My Life workbook:
- Write out whatever you remember. Simply write your subject (e.g., “Grandpa”) across the top of a page, and write “I remember” followed by whatever comes into your head for five or ten minutes. Don’t worry about spelling, grammar or formatting; simply writing down your stream of consciousness can help unearth long-forgotten memories. And if you run out of memories about your subject, simply write “I remember” over and over until you actually have a memory to write.
- Collaborate with others. Hearing about a particular time, place or person from someone else can give you fuller perspective and help trigger more memories (and, if the accounts are different, lead to interesting questions). Share copies of the eBook’s forms with relatives, friends, neighbors and any other important people in your life to make recording your story a collaborative effort. To help with this, many of the forms in this eBook have an “As Remembered by” line, allowing you to record who remembered what.
