Photos, objects, heirlooms

The occasion of recording your life story can  be a good time to identify important photos. It may be that you alone are able to identify people, places or things in these photos; or perhaps there is a family member who has that information and you want to be sure to ask for it. Let's talk about how you would  like to incorporate photos into your story!


Objects too have a tale to tell. Apart from their monetary value, the things we have chosen to keep around us, or to keep somewhere in a drawer but not to discard, have value. Each one has its story: where did it come from? How did we acquire it? What special meaning does it hold for us or for others?
