FREE Handout – Remember Me: Lifestreaming and the Modern Genealogist

The old phrase “The cobbler’s children always have the worse shoes,” rings true for genealogists when it comes to documenting our own lives. With a constant emphasis on preserving the memories of our ancestors, are we “walking the walk” when it comes to our own lives?

Earlier this week, on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks here in the US, I posted Documenting Memories and Family Stories: Remembering 9/11 with my own memories and a call to action for others to also document their memories of that day. This led to me thinking about the general concept called lifestreaming.

There has never been a better time for genealogists and family historians to embrace a new storytelling format: lifestreaming. From online diary apps to narrative “wearable” cameras, the technology now available to capture one’s life is amazing. With new ways to tell our own stories, do you have a plan to leave your own legacy?

HANDOUT Remember Me: Lifestreaming and the Modern Genealogist is a 5-page document outlining the reasons why you should be writing your own memories and experiences down into a fixed form (print or digital) along with a list of various platforms and resources utilizing modern technology for memory keeping!
