Memories of Me

Book Details
Author: Laura Hedgecock
Release Date: May 2014
Publisher: Plain Sight Publishing
Genre: Self-Help

As an avid genealogist I have learned to LOVE the hyphen (-) between the birth and death dates.

That little mark represents all the experiences and stories that shape our lives.

As I read stories about someone else they become more real to me.

I love learning about their struggles, their triumphs, their passions, their life.

Now with the help of this WONDERFUL book you can write your own stories to leave for your posterity.


You can write about someone else you know to leave a record of their life.

This book has:

*General writing tips

*Ideas on how to find the time to write

*Worksheets to help you know what to write about and to spark creativity.

*Examples of written and illustrated excerpts to explain what works and what might be too hard for your intended readers to follow.

This book will help you bring your family history or personal history alive.

It will allow you to leave a "treasure chest of memories ...for the important people in your life."


Phenomenal guidance!
Fantastic help!
Incredible worksheets!

About the Author
Laura Hedgecock’s passion for helping others share their stories stems from a gift left by her grandmother. Shortly before her death, Hazel Crymes passed on an old spiral notebook filled with a lifetime of memories, which she dubbed her “Treasure Chest of Memories.” Her writings included childhood memories, stories of her children as they grew, good recipes, and wisdom she had gathered along the way.

Drawing on her grandmother’s “Treasure Chest,” as well as her experience in genealogy, photography, scrapbooking, writing, and blogging, and her own journey compiling such a “Treasure Chest,” Ms. Hedgecock empowers memory collectors with down-to-earth, practical advice and creative ideas.

Laura Hedgecock is a freelance writer and blogs her own “Treasure Chest” atMemoriesInTheWind.wordpress.com and is a contributing blogger to Parents-Space.com andRedwoodssociety.com.
