What if your relatives are gone tomorrow?

At Roots Tech this year, there was a lot of emphasis on preserving your family on video, and on tape - even on your cell phone.  It's true, only you can hear them in your mind when they leave.  It's a final chance to do the right thing.

Some of the most poignant presentations were those of the Oaks, President Dallin H. Oaks, and his wife Sister Kristin Oaks, and Professor Henry Louis Gates from Harvard University

I was very touched by the participation of his family in doing family history and learning about their families.  After all, when we leave....so will the stories.  We need to get them down on paper, print, or some form of recorded media.  Watch this presentation...

THE SECTION THAT REMINDED ME THAT I SHOULD WORK WITH MY GRANDCHILDREN IS ON THIS VIDEO AT 21:49 - These are children who are actually 11 and doing research.  Where I was leery of younger people doing this work unsupervised before, this video opened my heart…
