From grandma’s favorite love letters to a great uncle’s World War II medals, your past shaped where your family is today. Will the details that impacted your personal story and identity be lost with your loved ones? Who was that letter from? What was that medal for? Will it all just end up in the trash? (Let’s hope not!)
Documenting and explaining all of it can be daunting as well. Passing on your memories to your children and grandchildren should not be a burden or a struggle. We asked genealogy and personal history experts to share their advice for collaboratively creating a family history that will stand the test of time.
