Personal Diary

Throughout your research project, you will be collecting all sorts of information about your ancestors and about their descendants.

It is also very important for future generations to know about you...

Keep a personal diary of some of the important events in your life. Write down not only the event and the date, but also describe in detail what was going on. Make notes of your thoughts and reflections of those events. Be very descriptive. Think about what you would have liked your grandmother to have written about during her life!

Use as much space as you need to record this information. The more you write, the easier future generations will be able to visualize what was going on.
