By the time we are adults, it is all too easy to look at our parents and grandparents as though their own lives have been miles removed from our own, causing a communication and generation gap seemingly impossible to bridge. But the older we get, the more we understand the importance of connecting with our elders before they're gone. There is no better way to do this than to talk to them like you never have before and create a record of their lives to share with the next generation.
Showcasing over 200 questions that are sure to help you know your loved ones better than you ever dreamed 'Touching Tomorrow' contains everything you need to record your family's most valuable asset: their wisdom, humour and love.
With tips on preparing both yourself and your elders for the technical and emotional process, helpful hints on coaxing shy or reluctant family members to participate, and heartwarming real life stories from people who have already preserved their elders' memories on tape, this is an invaluable guide to creating a precious family heirloom - one that will truly touch tomorrow.
