Overwhelmed by the thought of writing your personal history? The #52Stories project launched this year by the Family History Department can help with that.
“Each week in 2017, FamilySearch, the world’s largest genealogical organization, will publish topic questions designed to trigger your memories,” wrote Paul Nauta, manager of public affairs in a blog on the organization’s website. “You just need to focus on the topic and write a response.”
He went on to say the length of the response or manner of recording it doesn’t matter.
“You can write in a journal or in a document on your computer, or you can make a video or audio recording,” he suggested. “When 2017 concludes, you will have 52 stories about your life to enhance your personal history.”
Brother Nauta noted that the project has been divided into 12 monthly themes with 12 separate questions for each theme. The themes include “Goals and Achievements,” “Education and School,” and “Holidays and Traditions.”
The questions can be downloaded on 12 colorful pages from the FamilySearch website, FamilySearch.org. Also, a different question is being highlighted each week on Instagram (@FamilySearch) and the FamilySearch Facebook page.
