Overview

Legacy: A Step-by-Step Guide to Writing Personal History is animated by the belief that every life has value and knowledge for others. A personal history is a gift to share. It can restore the connection between generations. What did another time feel like, what did you do to pass the time - or to survive - and how did you feel about your choices? The small joys, triumphs, and turning points in a life have special meaning when shared with those who know the writer and who themselves are trying to respond appropriately when life graces them with blessings or seems to come up against a brick wall. Through supportive coaching, stimulating questions, shared memories, and evocative photographs, the process of producing a personal history becomes intriguing and engaging. With Legacy the possibilities expand, and our present and future find nourishment and knowledge in the past.

Alas, while it has a catchy title and good graphics design, this book is not, as the publisher claims, a step by step guide to writing a family history, at least in my opinion. I found it to be more like a Freshman 101 writing class. You know, probe your innermost thoughts and go back to the days when... One thing I found downright annoying was the lack of relationship between the photographs and the text. The pictures were apparently chosen to set a mood rather than inform (the families who loaned them did get credit up front). All in all, Legacy was a disappointment. If you really want a step by step guide to writing a family history, check out the Dummies book. It stresses the importance of such present day realitites as word processors and the Internet for research, etc., etc., which this book does not.
