Get together with others who want to preserve their life stories and family memories. We focus on recording all those wonderful stories you haven't gotten around to yet! We'll consider all methods: writing, video, audio, and more.
For those that want to write their stories, we offer seminars using structured life themes drawing on the Guided Autobiography method. This jumpstarts you into simply getting down your stories. We discuss the life themes and share the short stories in small groups.
We also talk about and provide other opportunities to preserve stories using video, and audio. Thought about a Life Stories interview? Want to record an Oral History telling memories about your family photos? We can discuss the options and how to prepare to do this.
We also have meetings to mingle and update each other on the progress of our projects, to keep us motivated. We discuss topics such as vintage photo scanning, printing with online services, basic genealogy searches, and related themes. If you've been meaning to preserve your life stories or those of your parents, grandparents or earlier -- this group is a great way to start.
