Legacy Stories focuses on the preservation of oral histories and living memories. LegacyStories.org is a free living history library that provides life story learning, recording, archiving and sharing to families, professionals and groups.
Oral histories tell the stories of individuals and cultures, giving meaning and value to our experiences. Unfortunately, they are also fleeting . While listeners might remember the significant events of the story, the tone, gestures and atmosphere of the story cannot be captured and passed on to others.
However, with sound and video technologies we can preserve and share many transient aspects of the oral biography process. By capturing voice, expression , inflection, laughter, and many of the subtle qualities that give an oral biography added meaning, family, friends and future generations can get maximum benefit from the experiences and wisdom of those who share their stories.
LIVING LEGACY PROJECT OVER VIEW
Strengthening our Families and Communities by Sharing Life Stories
The telling of life stories is a way of sharing family history
between generations. Today’s families are often separated, geographically or by hectic schedules. Taking time to visit older family
members – through letters, phone calls, personal visits, videos, or
audiotapes – is one way to exchange memories and life experiences.
Whatever ways you decide to visit and keep in touch,
between the generations helps both the young and the old.
PRESERVING KEEPSAKES AND HEIRLOOMS
HOW TO GIVE KEEPSAKES AND HEIRLOOMS AN HONORED PLACE IN FAMILY HISTORY
Throughout the course of our lifetime we accumulate mementos and keepsakes. These special objects represent unique life experiences. The stories behind these keepsakes are often the difference between being tossed by the next generation or becoming an heirloom. The same is true for keepsakes and heirlooms passed down to us by our ancestors. Click here to Read More. . .
