Re: Passing down family stories
In Response To: Passing down family stories ()

Afi-Odelia:
I would think that one of the special benefits of a "family reunion" would be to listen to a story about how the family came to be. Who the "Great Ones" were, their triumphs and failures. The story should be told by those who remember facts and who can tell a story. I have been telling my family story to anyone who will listen, but I ramble on and there is no real format. Just a collection of stories that occurred a long time ago that had an impact on my ancestors. So it is also the same type of story-telling I will do at our first family reunion, which will take place next week in Belleville,IL.
