YOUR STORIES Matter
Peta Roberts' podcast inspires me to add stories to my genealogy work.
We have many stories that only we can tell. Do you want to understand who your loved ones really are, or do you wish to be understood long after you are gone? Interview and write.
I would love for Peta to interview all of my willing family for their life stories, and she is actually available to hire for this, or helping to digitize and organize family photos and documents, and even writing a Legacy Letter (love letter) to family individuals.
About the podcast, I just listened to episodes 11 and 12 and was so moved! Brilliant ideas and resources within!!!
I love hearing about the different ways and different media that is used in this space. I was thinking about starting a service like this but I didn’t know what it was called. I do wish she had more show notes.
