Activity #7

Write Your Autobiography

"While scanning a box of my grandma's photos I found an old folder. It was an autobiography she had written when she was a teenager in Jr. High. There were pictures, stories, and facts that my family never knew about. I recorded her reading the autobiography and made a short movie from her pictures and stories."

How is this Family History?

 

Writing an autobiography is a valuable way to record your current perspective, philosophies, and goals. Stories that are vivid and clear to you right now might fade away with time. By recording your thoughts and memories they will be available to you and others as the years go by. One day this will likely be a treasured piece of family history for you and your family.
