I Remember

When I was a child, my Grandmother and I would sit on the front porch and she would tell me her memories of younger days. She especially loved to tell of her mother teaching her to Tate and crochet. Now my daughter Karen tells of me teaching her to crochet when she was seven. Karen is a member of many “Crocheting Clubs” around the world. She has learned many different stitches and made many Afghans to give away to friends and people she does not even know. Karen has crochet a Afghan pattern only once making each one , “one of a kind”. How thankful I am for memories.

FamilySearch Memories App

I am enjoying making new memories especially audio on This new app but I still have some questions and some things don’t quite work the way I need them to and I can not access these files on my regular family search Family Tree account which is confusing I would like to be able to access them through my regular family search account and for my family to see them but otherwise it’s really cool.

Audio files; on the go

I love that I can create an audio file when I'm visiting relatives. I'm not limited to bringing tons of equipment, just my phone to record oral histories... Then tag the file to the right people included in the history so it shows up on their person page.

Same thing with photos. I love to take pics of previous photos on the spot rather than borrowing them and being entrusted with irreplaceable memories to return.
