we're on Week 10 of our 52 weeks of Sharing Memories - A
Genealogy Journey Journal. I hope everyone will join me
this week to talk about memories of your first day of
school and of your first year.
Your Genealogy Journal for Sharing Memories can be private,
you work on it at home *or* you can share your memories on
my blog as a comment *or* you can write on your own blog.
Any way you choose the idea is just to get writing. Imagine
how thrilled our descendants would be to find our journals
in the future. We all know how happy we are if we find a
great grandmother's writings!
To see all 10 Weeks with the topics, just click on the
SHARING MEMORIES label in the right side bar of the blog
