The way that this book is designed is to have one person go through hundreds of questions and write down short answers, so that the completed book can be left to children or grandchildren. I've been using it differently: I have been asking older family members some of the questions in the book, and have been writing down their answers, which are usually much too long to fit in the book. I've been saving the stories on thumb drives, which I will give to my child and her cousins when this is completed. I'm also going to make a printed and bound copy to save as a family treasure.
The book goes through a person's life chronologically, and asks questions I hadn't even thought of: what you spent your money on as a child, for example. My mother answered this one in a way I found sad. She had a drawer full of German money, which depression-era inflation had made worthless. She used it as scrap paper or to play with. She had no other money as a child, and was happy that she had enough food to eat. Your parents would probably answer this in a different way, but however they answer, it will add to the treasure chest of stories we can leave to our children.
I doubt anyone would fill the entire book -- my peasant farmer grandparents can't tell stories about their fraternities or sororities, for example. But the book gives you hundreds of questions to ask yourself and the older generation that you love. The answers may be funny, sad or surprising, but they will be a priceless gift to the generations that come after you.
