From the Author
Capture the life stories of your family to pass on.
I grew up in the 60s and 70s and have recently celebrated my 40th birthday with Kate, my wife of 11 years. We have a daughter and a son and look forward to many of our best years still ahead of us. We are watching our parents and grandparents grow older now with trepidation and awe. Trepidation in realizing that they will not be with us forever and awe in realizing the wisdom about life they carry with them. My Grandpa Carl taught me to reach for the stars and to believe in myself even if others lose their faith. He also worked me hard, but laying those bricks in his backyard helped strengthen my work ethic. And he showed me how to treat math as an adventure instead of a chore. I have always loved hearing Grandpa spin yarns around the dinner table. They helped me to know him more intimately. I wanted to find a way to ask him about all the different areas of his life and to save what he told me, even some of the little tidbits that he would never think to add himself. It now comforts me to know that long after Grandpa Carl is gone I will still have this little book of treasures to share with my children and grandchildren. This book has 201 questions, covering the early, middle and later years under the topics of family, friends, education, work/responsibilities, and the world. I hope this collection of life stories will help you to also begin sharing your stories with those who will carry on in your path. David P. Marshall - co-author --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I'm planning to go through it with my mother and brother, thus capturing a family history that can be passed on to future generations.
Whether you keep the book to give to friends and family so that they can learn more about you, or use it to create your own biography, the questions prompt you to think about things that may be long past forgotten about so you also get to re-visit and take a nice trip down memory lane
