Preserve living memory

Purpose

Help those who may be uncomfortable with technology preserve their family history.

Description

Ask older members of the ward to gather old family photos and tell the youth about them (this could be done in their homes or elsewhere). Consider pairing one youth with each person. Scan photos, take digital photos of prints, or go to the local family history center to scan the photos. Consider recording some of the stories the older members may tell about their families. You may want to upload the information you find to Photos and Stories at lds.org/familyhistory, tag the people in the photos and stories, and connect them to Family Tree.
