Most of us can remember our grandparents - and can relate at least a few
stories about them, their lives and the kind of world they grew up in. But when
we try to recall anecdotes about our great grandparents, we're likely to hit a
brick wall. Many of us don't even know their names! This is a pity because there
immediate ancestors are part of who we are, as direct descendants, we might even
take after them.
By using this fill-in book you'll be forging the first link in a chain
encompassing your family's history - past and future. By providing invaluable
information about yourself and your spouse, your parents and your grandparents,
you'll be offering your family a priceless gift of knowledge.
This book, once completed will enable your children, grandchildren and great
grandchildren (as yet unborn), the ability to reach much further back into the
family tree than you or I could hope to do.
Future members of your family might be interested to learn that they've
inherited something such as their hazel eyes or curly hair, from a distant
forebear - perhaps even from yourself! Or they could find that their musical
talent duns in the family going back to a great great grandparent about who
they'd know nothing if it weren't for this unique family record.
Dates and places are of vital interest, but remember that it's often the
little things that will fascinate the contemporary reader: your grandmother's
love of fine china or your grandfather's passion for amateur astronomy. So don't
hesitate to flesh out your pen-portraits of your parents and grandparents with
personal anecdotes and descriptions. These are the things that bring people,
places and times to life.
Fill-in this book to help preserve your familiy's history.
