The value of preserving your history cannot be overstated. Recorded personal, family, and public histories give us a sense of who we are, where we come from, and where we are going. In today’s mobile and rapidly changing society, our most important bonds often weaken with geographical and generational distance. Recording and preserving our stories, be they personal, family, or larger histories, is a wonderful gift and a priceless legacy to ourselves and to those we love, now and into the future.
