Share Your Story; Get a Discount!

Good morning!

Did you know that October is Family History Month? Well, it is.  How will you observe it? Here are some suggestions:

  1. Spend some time looking through family photo albums with loved ones
  2. Investigate your roots via Ancestry.com or another genealogical website
  3. Reminisce while going through those trunks of grandma's in the attic
  4. Take a trip to the old home place

If none of these meet your definition of a fitting observation of the occasion, consider compiling some of your family history by writing about it or interviewing an older relative.  Many people have done this, and many others intend to do so.

If you are one of those folks who "intend to" but have yet to start, whether it is because you don't know where to start, or you just don't have the time, a personal historian can help. We can coach you on the process or just take the responsibility off your shoulders and make it easy for you to preserve your famly history by doing it for you. Then, you won't regret not having started when you discover Aunt Bessie's memory isn't what it used to be.

During the month of October, I invite you to take the first step. Send me, via this website's email comment function, a brief account of one of your family member's adventures.  If it is selected to be published on the website in my next blog, I'll give you a 10 percent discount on your family history project. (This will probably benefit you the most if you live in the Southwest!). Be sure to provide me your US Post Office mailing address, so that I can send you a certificate for the discount, which will be effective until Dec. 31, 2012.

Even if you don't end up hiring me to do your family history, you and your family will be still able to access the selected family stories in my blog.

Remember: tell your story, get a discount!
