Ask For Contributions #31Days

Today will be our last scheduled prompt in our quest to write our family stories. Tomorrow is Day 31 and will just be a wrap up post! So for today, I’m suggesting an assignment. Make a list of the things you might not know about your family. What do you still want to find out? Now, ask for contributions to your project from another family member, be it your parents, grandparents, spouse, children, or whomever you choose. Ask that person the things that you still want to know about your family. If you want, you could choose one question, such as “what is your favorite thing about our family?” and ask it to each family member available to you.

Feel free to share your family member’s contributions in the comments or by leaving a link to your post!

You know I always wished I asked my grandparents more and documented it. I mean they told me plenty of stories, but I never actually wrote the half of it down. So, this is a great idea and think I should definitely make sure to do this with my parents at the very least and get more of our family history documented now. Cannot believe by the way that this month is just about over. Crazy how fast October just flew by!

There are so many questions I'd love to ask my Mom but she prefers to keep things locked away. She was adopted and does NOT want to know anything about her biological family, where I am curious. She lost her mother at 21 and until last year, I didn't even know how she died. Funny thing though, ever since my son has been born she's been more open! I think she finds comfort in knowing there there are now 3 people on this planet she knows who share in her bloodline.
