I was looking for a journal to fill out and leave my kids, and this is the one. So many of the others had silly questions to fill out but this one was just right. It will probably take a year to fill out completely but will be a very special legacy to leave behind.

This book has something special that makes it far better than the other books of this type that I have used.

1. It is loose leaf, so that I can remove the pages that don't apply to my life.

2. It comes with a CD that you can use to print up more copies of the pages in the book. If you have six children and they provide pages enough for two, no problem, just print a few extra. Or, if you make a glaring mistake on a page, you can remove it and print another. Furthermore, there are some pages that are included on the CD that aren't in the book, probably because they aren't typical for many people. Single parenting is an example. There are forms you can use as extra pages for those questions you couldn't answer briefly.

I also like that the questions are pretty open ended and include the type of information that you might expect to be of interest to your children and grandchildren. No questions about your sex life, etc.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to record information about their life. I've tried, and enjoyed, several other books. However, this one is, without question, the best there is!

This book was an incredible find after purchasing several others that weren't nearly as well thought out. I love it.

This book is more properly a GUIDE with which to create a journal of your own. It actually contains instructions for how to use it, as well as giving topics and suggestions for subjects and questions to answer. But it is not really something you would give to your children or grandchildren as your life story or legacy on its own. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to keep it, as I was looking for something more to be used as answers to questions that tell the story of your life, to be passed down thru the family.

I think everyone should have a journal like this. There is so much I would've liked to know about my own family. Books like these keep the memories alive. Death is a heartache, no one can heal. But Love is a memory that no one can steal! Its a great keepsake to pass down to loved ones. and a good way to communicate with current friends and family!

Bought this as a gift for a friend who loves studying geneology. She was super excited to get it.
Great for passing down from generation to generation. Has interesting questions that aren't so obvious.
Good for mother's/father's day as well.

Looked at several books. Like format & book structure (3-ring, pages removable). Realized working on family tree that info & legit sources lost with passing of relatives. Trying to preserve what I can & what I know.
