Five Minute Family History

Save the stories! Become a story-catcher during your coffee break!

Welcome!  I'm glad you found me. I hope we can have fun here and do something really important, too. Doing family history isn’t only about visiting graveyards and documenting all the begats of dead ancestors, it’s also capturing living memory and creating a story your descendants will be eager to read.   So set aside a few short minutes–with morning coffee, at lunchtime or before bed–and write, type or speak fast!

A Holiday Romp


We have lots of holiday traditions in our family, some brought down from generations before and some we've come up with on our own.  One relatively new tradition is the Christmastime trek to a neighborhood near us to view a light and decoration extravaganza.  We take the dogs and the cameras and have hot chocolate waiting when we get back home.  While it makes me tired just to think of setting all these things up, they're fun to look at and I'm sure it builds community in this cul-de-sac. 

Pick a holiday and write about your favorite tradition in your family.
