Story Chain: New Feature at FamilySearch
Our mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and neighbors found in the 1940 census are known as "the greatest generation." We all have special memories of those found in this important historical collection—now it’s time to record and archive those stories. FamilySearch is providing everyone the unique opportunity to remember and share with the world just what they feel made these people great. On this new FamilySearch site you can submit photos, scrapbook pages, stories, or links to videos and Facebook pages in their honor under the Who’s In It tab. You can also post information about How It Was living where they lived, as well as stories telling Where They Were during major events in the late 1930s and early 1940s. The power of this online experience is that you can start a family and friend “Story Chain” and invite others to join in the conversation! Read what others have written and share your stories here.
