Create Your Story
Can you imagine how thrilled you would be to hear past generations telling tales of their lives in their own voices? With Captured Memories Live, generations to come will be able to listen to your voice and hear your story. Future generations will want to know everything about you because your daily life will seem somehow strange and exotic. Only you can tell the real story because your personal feelings and observations matter. This is your story and a way to preserve your memories.
Here are a few suggestions for framing your story. The following questions are only a guideline to help you recall your memories, and choose the stories you want to share. Together we will write your story to take your listener back in time. If you have pictures from your childhood, you will want to review those pictures because they too evoke memories. The story is yours!
