Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Your Story was originally written and published by Gift to the Future 2000. They were participants in The Millennium Yearbook Project, a program to gather, register and publish personal histories. It quickly became obvious that Your Story was a tremendous gift item for children (young and old) to give to parents and grandparents alike to record their personal and family histories. Stack Resources is proud to once again make this tremendous volume available to the public to make the sometimes daunting task of writing one's personal and family history far less intimidating. Imagine decades from now reading about your parents and grandparents lives, decisions and experiences, and making them available to your generations to come.

From the Back Cover

Everyone has a story to tell...This book is your opportunity to share "your story" with your family. It is in our past that future generations will find the beginnings of who they are. You may never have imagined yourself as the keeper of the family legacy...but you may be the only person who can give your family the gift of knowing its roots. Your descendants will want to know what life was really like in the "good old days" of the 20th Century. Few people have ever been able to guarantee that their thoughts will survive the passage of time. Your Story is your opportunity to do just that. INSIDE FLAP: You are about to begin a very special project. Through the means of a guided interview, this book will help you record your life story and family history for the generations to come-for those already living, and those who have yet to be born. Just Imagine! Decades from now. One of your young descendants will want to know where his or her family came from, and will wonder what life was like "in the olden days" of the 20th Century. By taking the time to answer in detail the questions contained in this book, you will be providing that young person with a gift beyond measure. We urge you to take as much care in crafting your answers to the questions in this volume as we have taken in preparing it for your use. To help you begin, we'd like to offer a few suggestions...First, just relax. Don't expect to write your life story off the top of your head. Doing this should be fun and fulfilling for you, not a chore. So don't try to finish the entire book in one or two sittings. We advise that you take time to draft "practice" answers. Some people can write down their thoughts exactly, the first time they put pen to paper. But most of us can't. Think of yourself as an author about to be published, and use scrap paper to write down your answers. Then change what you want, add what is needed, and transcribe your final thoughts into this volume. Finally, space has been provided below the title of each section to attach a photograph that relates to that phase of your life. You can also add pertinent information about the photo for future family members to read.

Your Story was given to me as a Christmas gift, and I've spent many enjoyable hours recalling memories and thoughts that were generated by the interview questions.
Pre-writing my responses on a separate sheet of paper, and then re-writing my edited responses into Your Story helped me have enough room for some of my more lengthy responses. Kind of a hassle, but worth it!
I am happy to see that I can now give other family members this book as a gift.

Our family purchased a few of the Your Story book for our older relatives. We've collected 4 books back so far and we are now treating these books as family treasures. Thanks

I found this book to be a valuable resource in putting together my history. The questions and organization was invaluable in putting together my thoughts and recalling memories I haven't thought about in years.
