A presentation by David G. O’Neil, founder of Story Trust®
How did your grandparents meet? How did the family business get started? What are your family’s food traditions and where did those recipes come from? What has been your biggest challenge in life?
The answers to these questions—and many more—can be preserved in a memoir.
Everyone has stories to tell—stories about where they are from, the people they remember, and how they chose to live their lives. Regardless of how a life story is recorded—in a book, or on audio or video—the important thing is that it is done— before it is too late and memories are lost forever.
Topics covered in this presentation:
•The value of recording and preserving the memories of family elders and organization leaders.
•How memoir books, oral histories, and documentary videos are produced.
•The challenges of encouraging family elders to share their memories.
•We will also listen to memoir excerpts.
