Consider this! YOUR life, the one you are living right now, is the "family history" of future generations. Believe it or not, your great-great-great-grandchildren will one day find your life fascinating – only IF you leave a record of it. But when it comes to leaving a legacy of your life stories – in the words of Dr. Seuss, "Short is better than length!" Why? Most importantly, short life story writing compels you to narrow down the most interesting and most important aspects of your life. Also: 1) People are more likely to read a shorter text; 2) It's much easier to write or record a series of short stories than a comprehensive chronological account; 3) Short stories are easy to upload on blogs, family history websites, and social media accounts. In this session we will show you: 1) How to choose your *best* stories; 2) What kind of detail to include – and exclude; 3) How to record your stories on audio/video if you don't want to write; 4) How to upload and share your short stories online so that they will be available now and in the future.

Somewhere in the continuum between a hoarder and compulsive purger is a happy medium for your family history. When a genealogist keeps everything, the next generation can be overwhelmed and decide to toss everything, just to save their sanity. But one person's junk could be another's family history treasure. How will the everyday stuff, the documents, and the heirlooms be passed down in your family? What can you do now to make sure the important stories are protected so that they can inspire future generations? How do you preserve the personalities of those who came before?
With a few simple steps, you can determine what is most valuable and how to best preserve it. Store your physical treasures so that they will be valued, and decide on the best digital archive and create a digital will so that your history will last into the next generations. The intersection between the digital and the physical world is changing drastically in this generation. Learn how to work with your family member's current interests and project into the future to determine what to keep and what to toss.
