Recording Parents & Grandparents stories

I recently started a project with my parents, my in-laws and my older son. Together, we are going to record their life story. I’m hopeful that my son, who is 9 will learn a number of skills through our project, including interviewing & asking questions and understanding why family is so important. He’s a sensitive kid that adores his grandparents and he loves everything “old school” so I think he will really enjoy the project. Fourth graders are busy with homework and extracurricular activities, so this will be an ongoing family project.  We are using the book “Living Legacies- How to Write, Illustrate and Share your life Stories” by Duane Elgin and Coleen LeDrew to inspire and guide us as we gather our families stories. It is a beautiful book but only available through 3rd party sellers right now. Check your library too!
