My family has a blog. It's a private blog and you need to know the user name and password in order to view it. The purpose of our family blog is to share stories of our family.
It's been up now for a couple of years and every so often, someone submits a story to be posted. My oldest younger sister and I are the ones who run it. The picture banner is taken from a wedding photo of my Mom and Dad. The blog is not on a Blogger platform, we pay for it, but Blogger has an option to create a private blog.
Our family is diverse and spread from Okinawa, Japan to Michigan. My children never really got a chance to interact with my parents. They were out here in WA and my parents lived in Michigan.
Mom passed away in 1989 and Dad passed just this last August. We got our Dad to write about some of his life and we posted it here. I still have a some things of his to post. Me and my three siblings have all shared stories as well. We do it for our children and grandchildren so that they might get a better sense of who they are and where they came from. It's away my part of the family can know my parents and my siblings' families and vice versa. All the family has access to it.
If I had thought about it, I would have recorded my dad's voice telling a story or two, but alas, I didn't think about it until after he was gone.
With the Holidays coming up and with many families spread out across the country and the world, this might be a way for you to share generational stories.
