Get started this weekend on your own story. And do one for each child.

Most genealogists start their search on free FamilySearch.org The New FamilySearch –which has its own group- will be even more fun. With features such as maps and timelines, and new access for LDS members to information on living relatives, you might say there is a revival for the creation of personal history. Family Search – Where Generations Meets offers a free online guide for this in its Family History Lesson Series. Write a Personal History is a fine, concise, and current lesson in 14 pages. While its long Appendix of interview questions is lacking in categorization, credit is due for the next Appendix which promotes the preservation of family treasures.

Wonderful is the word for such progress. Not long ago, the Internet was prohibited in the 4,500 Family History Centers. LDS families and their friends can now enjoy service beyond their basic temple times, and beyond the basics of genealogy charts with a small box available for source citations. Additional lessons are:
Perform Descendancy Research
Conduct Family Interviews
Involve Children and Youth in Family History
Create a Family History
Involve Your Extended Family in Family History
Use the Internet for Family History Research.

Have you recorded what you did the evening of the lunar landing? 40 years ago today. For many, this is one of the better turning points in our history.
If you need to jog your memory, try the films "The Right Stuff", "Apollo 13", and "Capricorn One" (which are not listed on my Group of films for genealogists).
