Tidbits on Collecting Life Histories

Tidbits from the Sandwich Generation #15, Asking Simple Questions can get Olympic- Sized Results… “Collecting family stories not only benefits the senior-storyteller, but can add to the richness of their relationship with their family members and caregivers,” commented Emily Newman of the Orlando Senior Help Desk. I am living proof of the previous statement, as it took me almost 50 years to uncover an Olympic-sized story that brought my maternal late-grandfather to life. As my Grandfather Irving passed before I was born, I never developed concrete images of he who was during his lifetime. I knew that he and my mother were close, and that despite being a lawyer, he “sold shirts for a living”.
