Show an Interest in Family Histories: A Tribute to Grandma, Part 2

November 7, 2014

Family historians are people who have an interest in their family. Does that definition include you? When I was about 10 years old Grandma gave me and each of my siblings a copy of Your Family Roots, a booklet which tells how to record a life story. With the booklet Grandma included a personal letter sharing why she felt it was important that I record my story.


Writing family histories was important to Grandma even though she never finished high school because she went home raise her younger sisters. Her writing is unpolished, often fragmented, and definitely does not conform to the written rules of the English language. But Grandma didn’t let the fact that she was not an accomplished writer stop her from telling her family stories, because she felt a need to preserve her family histories.
