Kassie Ritman not only writes family history, but makes a compelling case that you should, too! Maybe the young moms around us would see more clearly that their day-to-day lives and insights and inspirations are tremendously valuable to their descendants’ sense of self, if only the older history keepers in each family set the bar high and get those priceless memories recorded. Grandma may have only had a typewriter and onion skin paper, but we’ve each got a whole printing press and library archive on our desktops! Follow Kassie’s series, and match her memory for memory, and you’ll soon have a link across time to strengthen your children’s children.
