We will talk about all our ideas and our stories, and we will endeavor to share what we feel is important in order that our families not loose the thread, or the tales, of who we are and where we came from.
Seeing how important this is and hoping many of you will join us for our discussion, I am going to encourage you to do the following, and bring it along when you come to the library on the 22nd.
I would like for you to think back to your grandparents. What were they like? What is the one thing you would like your grandchildren to know about your grandparents, who would be their great-great grandparents?
When you have thought that through, take a minute and either with pen and paper or computer, write down a short, short story that would tell a small aspect of what your grandparents were like. Tell about something you did with them, something they did, or something funny or even sad that reminds you of them. It doesn’t have to be word-perfect, and it doesn’t have to be grammatically correct. It just needs to tell one thing that will help your grandchildren better know their ancestors.
Now, when you have done that, bring it along with you to the Boyce Ditto on the 22nd, and share it with us. Then we will talk about a lot of aspects of family history preservation!
See you then!
