Family Histories

Suggestions For Submitting Your Personal/Family History

A family's folklore or stories are often passed down from generation to generation by word of mouth. Every family has great stories that make us laugh and cry and remember all the special things about our loved ones.   Won't you consider sharing a story (or two)?

  • Have fun!  Writing your personal family history is an opportunity for you to take a trip down memory lane. 

  • Be creative!  Your family history can be written in many different ways.  You may want to tell your story in the first person, using "I" in your narrative.  Or you may decide to tell your story like a newspaper article.  Or maybe you might decide to write a poem about someone in your family.

  • Consider what you want others to remember about your family.  You are free to write as much or as little as you please.  You may want to tell your "life story" or just one story that reflects something significant about your life. 

  • Remember... no one can tell your story better than you.
