The History Project Is Almost Here!

Meet my great grandpa.

Aug. 1945   William Rudolph Gierisch  at  Redfish Lake, Idaho.


Isn’t he just the cutest?

Wouldn’t you love to know more about him?

The picture probably lends itself to be asked…

Did he love fishing?

Was he a happy soul?

Did he love the outdoors? 

The answers?

Yes.

But what about the rest of his story?

What did he do daily?

What was life like in 1920?

I can tell you right now, I know those answers because he kept a record. Tiny little brown journals where he recorded the weather and little lines of what he did each day as a farmer in Idaho.

When we came across those journals, it was truly like finding a pot of gold.

I can tell you, without out a doubt, that your life is interesting.
Your life is gold.
Your posterity will want to know all your stories growing up.

You may think you’ve forgotten,
but The History Project can help you recall and write those memories.

Your story is important.

Your story is you.

There’s no time like the present to write about the past.

Class starts August 24 and enrollment ends August 31.

What are you waiting for?

The time is now.

Don’t leave this life with your family yearning to want to know more about you like I do about my mom. Because when you’re gone, your stories are gone too because you didn’t write them down.

What an amazing gift–and Christmas gift–this would be.

    What a treasure you found. I have thought for quite sometime about my kids not really knowing anything about their great-grandparents or their grandparents. My parents and their siblings are gone now, so it is up to me to make note of this. Thank you for a little push to do this. This would be a great winter project.ReplyCancel
