Back to the future: Post 57 of 365 post prompts 2014 (M29)
A service has been invented through which you can send messages to people in the future. Today’s post asks us to whom would you send something, and what would you write.
If such a woman one day does exist, I would send to my Great great great Granddaughter. My son’s Child’s Child’s Child’s Daughter. I know how I find my family history fascinating and wish I could speak to my ancestors in some way to know them more personally. I would write her an account of my life story. I would write an account of all I know of my family’s history. I would also write her a summary of a year, the cost of bread, popular attractions and activities, important worldly and personal events etc.
I do intend to do these things and leave them with my son to pass on. I’ve already collected as much information as I can on my own and my husband’s families and I have compiled it in a “family tree book’’. I will endeavor soon to pick a year in which to write my summary on, possibly it will be 2014. And my life’s story, well I guess I should start writing it now and add to each year. I don’t know. I don’t feel I’m old enough yet to write a life’s story.
