Don’t know where to begin with your personal history? Start with the stories that are easy to tell


It was a great experience connecting with our new friends Tom and Alison Taylor of Pictures and Stories at RootsTech 2016!  Like us, they are a husband-and-wife team working together to help people capture and preserve their stories.

Sometimes it seems overwhelming when you try to figure out where to start writing your life story. Capturing your personal history is a monumental- and monumentally important- work. We love the advice from Alison and Tom about starting with the “low-hanging fruit” to get moving on writing your memoir.

What are the easy-to-tell stories in your life? Start with those. Get writing, and the memories will flow. Writing will become easier with each story you capture. Start wherever it feels comfortable to you, and don’t leave your tale untold…
