Different Perspectives

Have you asked all your family members the same questions about the same people?

You should.

And you should ask them separately. Even within the same family, older and younger siblings will remember different relatives, different details, and different life experiences.

And two grandchildren of the same set of grandparents may have entirely different stories--or at the very least, slightly different versions.

Multiple perspectives may help flesh out details in your family's past. Avoid asking just one person.

  1. My first cousins and I delighted in asking questions about the family "happenings" when our parents got together. It was fun to listen to the arguments that ensued!
