Family History TuesdayZ | Traditions

Here is this week's question:

Each Tuesday, I am going to be offering prompts or ideas. If you don't write in your journal regularly - I am going to encourage you to write just ONCE A WEEK and answer the question/idea that I give on Tuesdays. These ideas hopefully will spark a memory and you will be able to capture that in what you write/record so that it can be left for your children/grandchildren/family/friends. Give as much detail as you can when answering.

Will you do this for me? Will you do this for your families? You can write it down in a journal, you can type it up on a computer or journaling software, you can take a recorder and talk, you can videotape your answers, you can even scrap a page with the journaling. It doesn't matter how you do this - it's just important that you do it. The memories, the dates, the information is the only real thing we can leave to our families when we are gone.

If I come up with other family history ideas - I will be sure to share it here too - and if you want to share with me your ideas - that would be wonderful and I'd be glad to share them here too. Just comment here or email me at dedesmith32@gmail.com.

How fun! I actually wrote about some of the things my parents did for Easter when we were younger.

One time on the way to church on Easter Sunday we saw a rabbit. We told my little brother it was the Easter Bunny but he missed it.

Dede, I love Family History Tuesday! You are coming up with great questions that I think all of us would love to know about our ancestors, so they are great questions for us to answer :) I have a folder of your questions and my answers. I am hoping to expand on them this summer. Thanks and keep it up, it is very meaningful to me :)

I love these prompts. It's those little things I want to pass on to my DD that she will want to know in the future. Thank you very much!
