7memories was born of my urgent wish to encourage you to tell and write personal stories–your own–and those of your relatives. Our method gets you started with a manageable slice of life–just 7 memories. Please capture these rich memories before it’s too late.
In my case, I waited too long. When the first grandchild was born into our family, I felt compelled to regale her with stories about her great grandparents–my parents. Both were immigrants whose journey took them from oppression and poverty to freedom and prosperity; from riding in a horse and buggy to watching a man walk on the moon. Alas, they were no longer here to tell their stories. Instead, I patched together a photo memoir and wrote a child’s version of their life together. My brother’s grandchild delights in it.
