Keeping Family Journals
February 12th, 2013 posted by Doreene Clement
Keeping a journal or diary is not only beneficial to you as an individual, but also to your family. Do you remember the family vacation to Disneyland when you were 12? What about your parent’s 20-year anniversary? Or your birthday party when you turned 15? The new house you moved into in 8th grade? High school graduation? All those family memories from family events — all those moments in time, now past. A family journal is a book, or a series of books, where family members can journal about any event that has taken place. For example, there could be one individual journal that you take to every family reunion to capture current events year to year. It could have photos, memorabilia and journal entries from those who attended the reunion. The journal could also include letters, announcements and other updates from family members.
