Family History In The Outer Hebrides

Letters From The Islands

Memoir Writing Is Important To Preserve Family History

Memoir Writing Saves Precious Recollections

As time passes, I realise that memoir writing is important. I know it sounds a bit morbid, but after a parent or grandparent has passed away, have you ever asked yourself “I wish I had asked them more about …..”?

Only the other day I found out things about a family member, that I had never heard before which absolutely blew me away.

A Precious Gift To Your Family

1960s Wedding Memory

That is why more and more people are recording their memoirs, together with some photographs, in a book format. That book can then be gifted to family members. What a precious gift.

What Is Memoir Writing?

A memoir is a collection of memories of a certain situation. It could be your whole life, what led to you being where you are now, or it could cover a particular time or event in your life.

A Life Story Saved Online

Did you know that you can also add a text version of your memoir to ancestry.com adding photographs separately? That means that any relatives finding you will be able to read your history. That will be so exciting for them.

I am often asked to type memoirs and it is so interesting. Most often I am given a handwritten manuscript, however I can also type from an audio recording.

How Do I Record My Memoir?

As I said above, I can type from your handwriting, but you can use a video or voice recorder on your phone to record your memories. Or you can buy a cheap app for your mobile – Express Scribe produced by NCH software. This will enable you to easily pause, play-back and continue what you have recorded.

A recorder makes it easy to record the reminiscences of an older relative as you, with their permission, ask questions and record their answers.

A Book You Can Share

Once I have your history down in digital format, you can forward to a publisher or I can provide a digital document that looks like a book, complete with page numbers, contents page, and photographs.
