The purpose of my blog is to record my family history and genealogy on my mother's side of the family. The surnames include Hoover, Pickett (Piggott), Eccles, Huddleston, Manis (Maness), Gipson, (Gibson) Gifford, Lawson, Fish,and and other in my family tree. I will continue my genealogy research as I try to help others with their genealogy. I don't guarantee that all my genealogical conclusions are correct, they are a work in progress.
I have been thinking that it would be great to include stories of the living members of my family. I just am not sure about putting too much information on for public view.
If I don't get their stories now I may wait too late as I have done with the generations that are gone already. Even the young members of the family have stories that need to be recorded now. I know I had a brother die at 35 years of age and my first husband died at 31. I have memories of them but they have been gone for a long time now and it is harder to recall some things. If I had recorded details when they were here it would have been much better. I know my children would love to have more information about their father's years of growing up as they were quite young when he died.
Does anyone have suggestions about how to handle this and still protect the privacy of the family?
I will get back to the family history post tomorrow.
