"The Book of Me, Written by You is a real opportunity to explore your memories, thoughts, information from your life, things that you can remember, and perhaps the passing on of oral history. Over the course of the next 15 months you can explore your life via a series of weekly prompts which will be delivered via Thomas at GeneaBloggers.
This group exists to enable discussion and hopefully feedback to accompany the prompts. I have added to the files the background information to the physical workshops that I wrote and subsequently delivered, along with further details with a genealogical slant.
See: The Book of Me Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/bookofme/
So I've decided to follow the prompts. Naturally the first entry is a little late. Look for Prompt 2's post tomorrow.
Week 1 Assignment: http://geneabloggers.com/book-written-prompt-1/
Prompt 1: Who Are You? The prompt for week 1 is a recognized psychology test: Ask yourself 20 times “Who are you?” Each time you should give yourself a different answer, and if you can easily go beyond 20 entries then that is fine too. This prompt is about how YOU see YOU.
