How can I preserve my family history?

Family history

Support your family history. Take this time to interview members of your family, especially the older ones, and ask for names and birthdates and places of birth of family members here and gone. Once these people are gone, it will be harder for you to construct your family tree. Start your notes now
with those that are still with you. Ask not only for history information, but for stories and other memories as well. Either write them down or use a tape recorder. Save the tapes as well as write
them into a scrapbook or memory book.
