Legacy · A Step-by-Step Guide to Writing Personal History
By Linda Spence

When Linda Spence asked her aging mother to write her life story, her mother stared at a blank sheet of paper and asked—“How? Where do I begin?” In this practical guide to capturing those memories that have been stored away, Linda Spence provides the questions that are the keys to unlocking the memories that make up a life.

“Prompted by the belief that every-day life has value and knowledge from generations ahead, Spence has compiled a well-organized, inspiring introduction to systematically recording family histories…In lucid prose, the work suggests specific topics, questions to ask and inspires an impetus for a new generation of historians and scribes.”
