LDS Life // 52 Stories is an Easy Way to Record Your Life’s Memories!

1.19.2017


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.”


The initiative expands upon a similar, successful challenge FamilySearch offered four years ago, said Wendy Smedley, project manager for social media. “This year, however, instead of having a list of only 52 questions, the writer can choose his or her 52 questions from a list of 144 questions.”

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.

Thank you for the free downloads. I used to journal when I was young, but my mother deliberately read it and my father almost put me through a wall when she told him what I wrote about each day. I haven't written anything since then except for my PTSD journal. This gives me the opportunity to give my children something other than the past.
