“I believe it is important for future generations to understand their roots and to know how family members who preceded them lived, what they learned, what they believed in and why, and their wishes for their children and grandchildren. For it is these stories that can shape the lives of the children who come after us. This is why I enjoy helping individuals capture their legacy to leave as a precious gift for future generations.” — Beth Bahner
A Personal Story
I remember as a child sitting around the dining room table listening to my parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles share family stories that had been handed-down from one generation to the next. The stories were retold countless times over the years and they became an integral part of my life.
Multi-generational family gatherings are increasingly rare. As a result, grandchildren and great-grandchildren know very little about the generations that preceded them.
Preserving our life stories for future generations is important. Passing down family stories, values, core beliefs, life experiences and lessons learned ensure that our heirs will have a greater appreciation for their roots and ancestors.
