Who’s Up Wednesday: Denis Ledoux – Gather Memories at Family Events

Summer is ending and the holidays will soon be upon us; I hope you found time to gather some of the stories from family members while you were attending those reunions and weddings.   Compilations of stories are priceless, and our time is so limited in capturing them.  Even though we all know the importance of preserving those stories from our relatives, how do we start?  And what do we do once we have the stories?  Believe it or not, there is an easy way to make this happen so that the stories come naturally and not forced.
