Good Housekeeping: We’re Losing Generations of Family History Because We Don’t Share Our Stories

Good Housekeeping: We’re Losing Generations of Family History Because We Don’t Share Our Stories. “Most people don’t know much about their family history. This is because people usually don’t become interested in genealogy until they’re in their 50s and 60s, when they have more time to reflect on their family identity. The problem is that by that time, their grandparents and parents have often already passed away or are unable to recount their stories. Because of this, we’re losing generations of stories, and all of the benefits that come with them.”
