Yes, Barbra Streisand sang it best, didn't she? Maybe those words bring a tear to your eye as they do mine. Perhaps those tears are tinged with just a hint of regret that those memories will be lost when you are gone.
We all have them. Memories. We all have stories to tell. Most often they come to mind triggered by a song, a touch or a photograph. But, too many of them are lost to time.
Sitting around the Thanksgiving table someone will mention Uncle Harry's dog Jasper who stole the turkey right off the table way back when. One of the younger kids will ask "what's that all about?"
What happens when no one is left who can remember that story. Or the one about how cousin George stormed the beaches at Normandy bringing honor to the family name.
How about the grandfather who served in WWI in the Army who turned around and joined the Navy when he was discharged? His tales about getting gassed in France are epic. These stories and many, many more are what make us who we are.
There are tools available nowadays that will help us trace our ancestry. There's even a television program that shows how celebrities do it. These are great things, but what about the humanity? What about the stories that touch each of us personally?

About the Author
She heard some stories of older members of her fam which few in the family knew much about. Mary thought that the stories should be recorded for later generations before many of the details were lost.
People often suffered memory loss through ill health or their written records were lost.
Mary contacted some of the older family members and recorded their stories for sharing, if they agreed, with the wider family.
Mary said,” This was a great idea. It benefitted so many people! The subject was happy that their lives would be read by later generations and the other people were able to read and know more about family members of the past.”
“This is a great form of writing which anyone can do. You don’t need any training, just a sincere interest, a pen or laptop and a recording device.”
“People had young children who could read about their ancestors’ lives and thoughts. The older people were pleased their stories were to be shared.”
“This made for better understanding of each other and encouraged more contact as well.”
Mary said that her writing improved because she wanted to get the best possible results for them.
After Mary had helped do a couple of Memoirs, other people wanted to pay her to do a Memoir for their families.
