My mom passed away with breast cancer last year at the age of 63, and I was only 36. We spent the final six months that she was alive going through this book. When she was having a good day, she would ask if I wanted to do a few pages of the book. It was very important for her that my young children know about her. She wanted them to know about what it was like when she grew up, the struggles she went through, and most importantly, she wanted to have a way to pass on to them the lessons she had learned in life that she felt it was so important for them to know. We made it through all but three pages before she passed away, but I was able to fill in those pages with what I believed she would have said. I am very thankful for this book and to this author, because my mom was able to leave me the most wonderful treasure behind that she could have left, her memories.

I was so surprised to see a negative review that stopped others from buying the book, that I had to write my own comments. I bought this book last year, and have spent many hours (and still many more to go!) finding out information from my 85 year old Mom's family that I never knew...awesome history of a Uncle who received a Purple Heart, another uncle who was in Vauderville singing and dancing in the 1920's...stories of lost loves...I could go on and on. I am in this site today to order another book for my daughter-in-law and her mom.

I haven't actually started to write in the book but I've looked at some of the questions to answer. I'm going to have fun reminiscing. My sister suggested we discuss some of the questions and pool our memories together. I have a brand new granddaughter that I'm planning to pass the book to after I've filled in the blanks. I'm also planning to do books for my own two daughters.

The questions/writing prompts are really wonderful, but there isn't enough space to write! There are 2-3 questions on a page that spark in-depth answers, but there just isn't enough room to fill in the answers. I'm going to end up typing out most of them on separate sheets of paper.

I got this book so that I could have something for my daughter to read when she's older and my mother is gone so that she can continue to know/have a connection with her Grandmother. Going through this book with my mom has been a wonderful experience. I recently lost my grandmother and the first section of the book where it asks about your mother's parents has been a wonderful way for us to reminisce about her. I highly recommend this book and will probably be buying copies for my friends and inlaws.

I originally bought this book for my Father, with the intention of finding one for my Mom. We only recently began working through the questions, but I am ordering enough for all my Aunts and Uncles; and for my married brothers and sisters. Too many times you don't ask questions until the person who knows the answer is gone; and you lose family history. This is fun to do in a group, as one person's memories will spark others. Also, one of my siblings said it would be really fun to record the conversations as you go through the questions. Before my Grandmother died several years ago, I gave her a tape recorder and blank tapes; and asked her to record her memories. Fortunately a cousin stepped in to operate the tape recorder, and after Grandma died; we printed a book from those taped sessions. Just recently, one of my sisters, and a cousin, had those tapes transferred to CDs, and now we can all have a set of CD's with Grandma's voice talking about growing up, getting married etc. So, the project is growing, to include video recording the sessions. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is curious or cares about their family history.

This product is great for people who:
1. Like to scrapbook (there are many spots for pictures to be added)
2. Have a Mom AND a Dad who are still happily married
3. Have many brothers and sisters or parents with many brothers and sisters
4. Want to know EVERYTHING about your mom. "When did you first smoke a cigarette or take a drink of alcohol?" is one of the questions; this may make some uncomfortable.
5. Have a mother that is fairly old. My mom is 73, and most women she grew up with went to college. The book has statements such as, "It wasn't common for girls of your generation to even think about going to college. Was this something that you wanted to do?"

Since I:
1. Don't like scrapbooking,
2. Don't have a mom and dad still married to each other,
3. Only have one brother and my mom is estranged from her only brother,
4. Don't feel comfortable asking some of the questions asked, and
5. Don't have an ancient mom,

I'll be returning the item.

This book is absolutely amazing! I got one for my mother to do with me and one to fill out myself for my future children. Some of the questions don't apply yet (I'm only 26 and have no children yet), but I just skip them and answer the ones I can. I have sat down to answer some questions and find myself crying from the in depth things they ask and the memories it stirs in me. Okay maybe I'm a little sensitive, but I love that it asks about the smells from your first house and the way you veiw your parents relationship. SUCH a wonderful way to bond with your mom!
