If you’ve been researching your family tree you’ll understand the kind of connection you make with your ancestors. They become real people who lived real lives and how they handled with the cards they were dealt. The more you find out the more you want to understand how they lived and felt about special occasions or their relationships with other members of their families.

I’ve recently found The Remembering Site (launched in 2004), it’s an interesting site and a potential solution for people who’d like to write and publish their life story or write about personal incidents that they’d like to pass on for future generations, such as, births, weddings, their work, or their saddest and happiest moments.

The potential is endless. It’s the story of your life and about what happens on your home turf. The site even helps you to put your thoughts together by asking questions that will trigger a memory.

You can keep your memories private or share them with others. On the site can read the life experiences of others in the Featured Biographies section. According to the owners, teachers actually use the site to connect children with the older generations.

All of this comes with the expected price tag. There’s a one-time registration fee of $25 dollars and there are fees charged if you decide to enlist the help of a professional writer. It will also cost you money to print your memories in book form.

I’ll say right now that I’m not a member of The Remembering Site so I’m not writing this piece from user experience. It’s a different kind of writing site and I can only suggest that, like me, you take a look to see exactly what’s offered. There’s quite a lot of information on the site and just taking a look around might trigger some  ideas on how to proceed on your own.

    Thanks for this suggestion, Sandy. $25 isn’t that much for the convenience of everything set up for you –if it helps people record memories and connect easily with others
