What Legacy Will You Leave?
Over the past year, as I have been delivering lectures at various events, there seems to be one main concern on the mind of genealogists who are busy documenting the lives of their ancestors: what about my legacy? What will my descendants know about me and my life? What can I do now to ensure that I leave a legacy?
With Baby Boomers getting older, I don’t foresee this focus area diminishing in intensity. Genealogists and family historians will soon start focusing on documenting their own lives if they haven’t done so already.
During the entire month of November, I will be teaming up with Lisa A. Alzo of The Accidental Genealogist to focus on not just the general topic of family history writing, but actually ways to preserve our own stories as family historians.
