Description

I have had the pleasure to be involved in many successful local history projects in which we helped collect and publish the shared memories of local elders. In each project, a customized memory sparking workbook was created and distributed to community elders. An overwhelming number of the workbooks were completed and returned to the historical societies. Community members also shared personal photos and mementos. The stories were transcribed, illustrated with the images, and published.

I would like to encourage other communities to conduct their own “Memory Book Project” and have now published Memory Book Projects: Collecting Stories and Memorabilia, a director’s guide to the collection of community memoirs. This handbook provides detailed instructions for conducting a Memory Book Project—whether you are working for a historical organization, preparing a church or organizational history, or putting together a book of family stories.

Topics include:
* Getting Started
* Selecting Topics, Setting Goals
* Personnel
* Creating, Publishing, and Using a Workbook
* Ensuring Success, Staying Organized
* Encouraging Participants
* Collecting Photos, Images, and Other Artifacts
* Choosing Stories
* Publishing a Memory Book
* Creating an Exhibit and Other End Products
* Funding Your Project

Appendices include topic ideas, methods to get contributors to write, printing and publication recommendations, reproducible worksheets for the project director, and a list of resources.
