Need Help Remembering Stories?

Adapted from his book, How to Record Your Family History, Dr. Ross includes his powerful “MEMORY JOGGER” — with over 300 stimulating ideas for stories, such as:

  • As a child what made your mother happy or sad?
  • Which parent did you go to when you wanted something?
  • As a teen, what were you NOT allowed to do?
  • Did you ever have problems making ends meet?
  • Did you have any “interesting” relatives?
  • Whatʼs your biggest mistake?
  • Whatʼs the favorite place you visited?
  • How did your life change when your children left home?
  • What significant values have guided you through life?

You’re Hardwired for Stories!

“Inside each of us is a natural-born storyteller,
waiting to be released.”   — Robin Moore

Young and old alike love a good story, and
storytelling is a skill you already have. With
a little help, you can get really good at it!

Stories Point the Way

Stories reveal values you learned by surviving the good and bad of life; they make personal and colorful the wisdom and love you most want to share.

The Cost of Not Telling Your Stories

“When an old man dies, a library burns
to the ground.”   — African Proverb

Facts, figures and opinions fade quickly
from memory, but stories endure and are
often repeated. The greatest teacher of all taught in parables, and today we’re still reading His stories, seeking His wisdom.

Don’t let your “library burn” — start writing!

Love never dies – neither should your stories.
