"When a librarian by the name of Carmen Nigro published a post on the New York Public Library blog entitled 20 Reasons Why You Should Write Your Family History, personal historians and APH members around the world rejoiced. Ms. Nigro had tapped into the multitude of absolutely terrific reasons individuals, families and organisations should consider working with a personal historian to preserve their stories.
Tomorrow, we launch the first in a weekly, 20-part series inspired by the New York Public Library blog post. The following 20 members of the Association of Personal Historians will expand upon each of the 20 important motivations listed in Nigro’s article."
At the time of this post, the series was at #8. Bookmark the site so you don't miss any future articles. To find out what each of the 20 topics will be about, read the blog 20 Reasons Why You Should Write Your Family History that kick-started this series. But expect to find out about the how important your stories are to future generations, depict your ancestors how you see fit, therapeutic value, and much more.
