Comments: Personal Histories

That's a great idea. A few years ago my sister did an "interview" with our grandmother (now aged 86; sharp and with a pleasant bouquet). Born in'17, child of the '20's, worked her way through the '30's, marriage and babies and war in the '40's, boomer teenagers in the '50's, grandkids in the '60's and '70's, remarried in the '80's (grampa died after raking some leaves in the fall of '77 at the age of 62). Every family (re)union we have is because of her. She's a matriarch if there ever was one. I'll see if I can get the text and send it along!

That would be excellent. :-)
